Help needed oil leak and water leak

Hello there

First one got an oil leak on the left hand side of the engine under the manifold.
Please see picture.
Is the cylinder head gasket maybe going or something else?
Any help will be appreciated.

And the water leak.
I got in it the other day and noticed a tiny bit of water down by the clutch pedal on the mat.
Today it had trouble starting but did start and there was a bigger puddle there.
Going along I noticed the sidelight symbol was on the dash but lights were turned to off. As soon as I turned the lights on the sound on the stereo went off.
Tomorrow I will seal the bulk head to window frame to see if that stops it.
I'll let it dry out and see what happens, any advice on what it could be?
I did have the clutch done last week and this has happened since then but I can't see a connection.

Regarding the water keak: Are you sure that is water?
Can be the oil from the clutch master cylinder tht usually drops from the clutch to the mat (quite common fault at lest in mine)

Cheers and good luck with the engine oil leak Eduardo

yeah it's definitely water I check the master cylinder because my clutch went a couple of weeks ago and that's one of the first things I checked as well but there's no water today so no clue
