Find for sure where it's coming from. Then go from there.
If it is the water pump, I'd put a new pump on. While doing so, I'd put on a dual alternator upper rad hose, billet thermo housing, flush the system with Cat EC-1 rated ELC, and maybe even a coolant filter.

Wash it really really good and then get in there and look carefully where it starts.
