Filter head leaking

My truck has been starting for 3 seconds in the morning then shutting off. I traced it to the fuel filter head. Seems like truck is loosing prime overnight. I did the research and ordered the rebuild kit, but in second looks, it appears to be bubbling from the location in the picture. I dont think the rebuild kit addresses this location. What is this sensor and how do I stop it from leaking?

The rebuild kit does come with a new o-ring for that spot, you'll be good once you do the rebuild
