Are you talking about the freeze plugs? There are two. One between 5 & 6 and one between 1 & 2. about 3-4 inches or so below the head. As long as coolant isn't coming out of them from the inside you're okay. Maybe something spilled on it. But if you have any doubt about whether or not they are leaking from the inside, I'd replace them. A litttle messy, but not hard.

yeah its the forward one. more towards teh radiator. its just a white fluid that appears to be hardened. kinda ashy

Sounds like dried antifreeze. That same kind of stuff was all around where my headgasket has been leaking antifreeze.
