Merc Optimax 175 Leak

I have a 189 with the Optimax 175. It has about 25 hours or so on the motor and this weekend when I went to flush the motor and noticed a pinhole and a stream of water coming out a gasket on the lower unit.

I'm attaching a picture.

I do not remember ever seeing this before, however, I usually just hook up the motor and start flushing while I clean the rest of the boat.

Is this normal? Or should I be concerned?
