Not sure whats going on here, i pulled into my driveway last night and noticed this, it actually even worse this morning. I have never seen this before. This is the front of my house.

How old is the house?
Have you had any significantly cold weather?
First cold season or established house?

Someone needs to get up in the attic and find the source of the water.

Are the shingles in good shape? As PD said, you need to get in the attic and see what is going on! Water can run a long ways along a rafter before it finds a convenient place to exit. An attic inspection should let you know where the water is coming from.

Gutters above that area? If there plugged up water can get behind them and run down the soffits.
Not having any shingle over hang or drip edging can also allow water to get behind the Fascia.
