2005 Optima hose or thermostat issues

I noticed that the top hose from the radiator to the engine drips by the engine. Just a little. What the chance the hose need replacing or the thermostat?

Frank take a look at the picture on your other question. It appears that there are two hose connectors and the thermostat on the side. It is hard to say which part is leaking but my first gut reaction would be that it is the hose. It is far more exposed to the elements as well as movement. The thermostat should sit snug in the housing. Again, a bit more of a visual inspection might give you the answer. Good Luck
