Leaking hot water heater

Hoping for some advice. Looks like my hot water heater is leaking, I am just looking for some guidance on how to proceed...should I just call someone in to help diagnose the issue? Or is there something I can do to determine what needs repair/replacement? Thanks in advance for any help.

Welcome to the forums.

I'd agree......your water heater is leaking.
It looks like the leak my be at the top of the tank at the water inlet fitting.
It's hard to say if that's the only leak you have.

Do you know how old the water heater is..... it may be time for a replacement ?
