Distilled water is mixed 50/50 with the coolant, so you can't be leaking coolant and water separately, but rather, you can be leaking a coolant/water mixture. The part you circled in the photo is the drain plug for the radiator. It could be leaking from there, or it could be leaking from the side tank seams and/or hose flange and running down the side. You would be well advised to read this thread:
