Oil leak and belt slippage

I had a water pump fail about 3 months ago. After I changed my water pump I began to have problems with my belt slipping. I also noticed oil around the pulley area near where I believe the head gasket is. I also am not sure if whether or not my belt tensioner needs to be replaced as well. Attached is a pic of the area where my leak is coming from. I don't want to just throw money at the problem and not make it go away.

Is it the front of the valve cover gasket? If not it may be a little lower, you could try to retorque the cylinder head bolts.

It is lower than the valve cover. I was also concerned if I am over looking the belt tensioner as well
