Question Coolant Leak - under oil filter

When I pulled into the garage today I smelled coolant, opened the hood, and found coolant under the oil filter. Obviously it isn't coming from the oil filter itself. There is no fluid on the right (passenger) side. It is all on the left side. the radiator is dry. It doesn't have any fluid on the front of the engine. I haven't crawled under the car yet. anybody have any ideas of what it might be?

Per the dealer it is a leaky water pump. Luckily covered under warranty. My car has 29,194 miles. I will find out if there is anything else when I pick the car up tomorrow.

It was the water pump. Per the dealer they stated the seals for the smaller water pump are thinner and they have seen several come in with leaks. Luckily mine was under warranty. The dealer replaced it at no charge and I was on my way.
