Problem Description and Possible Solution

Makes humming noise when the steering is turned, even very slightly, particularly in the morning and when the weather is cold. I was told that power steering hose and perhaps pump would need to be replaced.
Just yesterday my Truck started making widing noises, I checked the fluid noticed it was bone dry, Put some in. Now I noticed the sounds are starting to come back
Replaced condenser, pump, pump line kit, etc. where else can it be leaking from? I have pulled everything apart don't know what else to do. Even replaced all lines. It leaks on passenger side and it is a steady drip. Nothing casual about it.
Ford edge same as MKZ, noticed fluid is dark and level is halfway between low mark and bottom of reservoir, so is significantly low. More importantly, I purchased the car as CPO 4 months ago and level was ok.
