Most likely you need a new waterpump. Let the engine cool down and inspect the hoses and pump. But I would be prepared to replace that pump.

it is still pumping fine cause the engine hasnt gone up in temp at all even sitting on a hot day! so you dont think the seal would work?

It depends on where it is actually leaking at.
