There are core plugs that are in that area and if the cooling system is not properly maintained they rust through and leak. There are the same type of plugs at the rear of the engine block too, so those can leak and that leakage can migrate towards the starter. Might want to have a shop add UV dye to your coolant and then pressure test the cooling system, this will ensure an accurate diagnosis. good luck.
