Leaking coolant from bolts above exhaust manifold HELP!?

Please help identify these bolts with coolant around them and possible cause?? I'm thinking its a head bolt but not sure maybe time for a head gasket? 03 5.9 24v THANKS!

looks like to me the leak is coming from the two plugs, clean the area really good and see exactly where the leak is

Hey thanks for the reply, so those are just plugs What are they plus for? Would it be possible to maybe run them out put some thread sealer on them and put them back in?

Heater plumbing can be installed in different locations for different applications.

Actually the pipe in the background for the heater hose looks a bit corroded too.

If it were mine I think I’d pull that too, while messing with the plugs. If it or the plugs can’t be cleaned up, I’d replace them.
