540i random coolant leak

Hey guys the other day i noticed a puddle of coolant under my car followed by a warning when i drove her down the block. My cluster pixels are dead so i cant make out what its saying. Theres coolant along the side of my waterpump. I just replaced it last month along with the thermostat from bmw. Could the seals for the pipes in the back of the pump be leaking or what else could it be. Ill leave some pictures of the warning and waterpump, if anyone can help me out that would be great!

I think it says Check Coolant Level. I had a coolant leak and saw these warnings very often. I had to install a new radiator.
