Another leaking window thread

Been in the house about 2 months and this started today unfortunately. This is on the top of the window.

If I can fix it myself, great, but if I need to hire a professional..well, not so great but at least I know

Welcome to the forums Felix!

A pic from further back showing the side of the house would be helpful. What is above the window?
It doesn't look like anyone caulked the window to the stucco and it should be.

thank for the advice; pics will be up tomorrow since it's still storming. But we have a big problem now; we have leaks in 2 other rooms in the house unfortunately. A leak from the bathroom fan and a leak in the bedroom.

My wife and I just moved into the house two months ago so we're a bit miffed. Any advice on how to proceed here besides calling an expert.

How old is the roof on this home? If you're leaking around the exhaust fan that means it's open to the outside elements. Not only that but with what the pictures show yoy may very well have wall board damage and a mold problem. I don't mean to be the bearer of bad news but did you have a home inspection done prior to buying?

The leaks may or may not be related, water can travel a ways before it finds an exit - it looks for the path of least resistance. As Norm said, the ceiling leaks are likely roof related Someone needs to get up there to inspect it.
