Oil Leak after Oil Pump Reseal

Hello All,
3 weeks after oil pump reseal, timing belt kit install, I see a small leak from this bolt, looks like some kinda of a bleeding connector?. It's seems like this part in the picture is leaking, what part is it? I am using a stock photo for better reference.

That is the Block coolant drain peacock… Its used to drain the block from all the coolant, So no oil leaks from there.

Yup, if you remove it and clean it with a wire brush/wheel and re-install it you should be fine. Go easy on tightness - if you pull the threads you will not be happy.

I confirmed that it's the valve cover leaking right above that coolant drain peacock. Thank you all.
