Coolant leak

Last weekend I had the RE pulley installed, while we were doing it we found a small coolant leak where a rubber hose meets a metal pipe. It's just under the charge pipe portion of the intake. After we finished installing I took it to the dealer. They said I need the coolant pipe replaced and that one of my valve covers was leaking as well. Both parts needed to be ordered. I'm taking it tomorrow to have it repaired. My car is an 08 with 15k. Has anyone else experienced anything similar? I find it odd that my valve cover is leaking.
