300E advice Benzmac?

Benzmac, after driving for about 10 min. I lose about a quart of coolant. As best as I can tell, the leak appears to be at the rear passenger corner of the engine at approx the same spot that I've had a minor oil leak for quite some time. Coolant leaks from this area until the engine has cooled down for 45 min or so. I looked around for another source but it looks like the head gasket to me. Searching other posts about head gasket problems doesn't reveal any similar problems with head gaskets though. Is this likely?

If this is the head gasket, is there any other work that is suggested? Such as a water pump maybe as this has not yet been replaced. Should the head be reworked?
