Default water puddle

On the top of my waterpump where there is a little dip, water always builds up there. Not alot but a little puddle. It looks like its comming from a little whole in the back of the water pump. what could be my problem?

You dont have a chrome gooseneck do you? We do and it leaked there all the time. We finally fixed the leak using pipe dope and teflon tape.
