Could be just your windshield fluid container leaking,which you should not worry about,check container and see if it is low and put a mark on level and see if it goes below,Your pump is connected to container and it may be leaking there,look and see.

SOURCE: Nissan Altima Water Leak
as a former certified nissan service advisor, i would say that if it has a parts defect then there is no way that it will nat be covered under warranty. I have seen the sunroof drain on several cars be kinked at the lower end near the kick panel. try opening the sunroof and pouring a small amount of water in the drain hole at the corner of the opening. Also, i have seen where the insulation for the door wiring harness soaks up water then spills out onto the carpet. as long as you are under the 36k mile mark and have not been in an accident, then this is absolutely a warranty repair. if th dealer will not fix it then try another dealer or ask for the regional service rep.

1. Improper water circulation: Sometimes, eventhough you are sure that you have enough water on your radiator, your car still overheats. It might probably be that the water is cannot circulate properly, which results to improper cooling process. There are several reasons for this which you can discover by yourself.
To verify if the water circulates properly, start your engine without the radiator cap. If water circulation is good, you should notice that the water pops smoothly over the top but still retains the amount. Another way to check, detach one of the ends of your radiator hose from your radiator and see if water flows continously over.
If water doesn’t circulates well, check the thermostat if it’s open. It should be open, meaning clean, and the water can pass through it.
If thermostat is clean and still the water doesn’t circulate properly, then you have to check the water pump. That’s probably where the problem is. A little leak on the pump will cause improper flow of water through the radiator system.
If you are sure that the problem is not about water circulation, another thing you can consider is check the engine oil. Very low amount of oil can cause greater friction of the mechanical system of your engine. If it’s not time to change oil yet, you can add over some amount of oil until advisable amount is reached.
While we can’t be always sure about our engine, especially if it’s not new, we should be prepared when it happens. Bringing extra gallon of water in your trunk will surely help.

Very possible. The water pump will be run by the timing belt behind the engine cover and on the same side of the motor as all your external belts. Make sure there are no hoses close by that could be leaking and if not it will probly be the water pump. Usually they will make a noise when they are failing. Remeber if it is just a drip and it is hot outside if you run your air conditioning it will drip water from the condenser as well.
