If you have seen the signs of leakage around the water pump thn its worth replacing it being that far already.
Its better too, to flush the radiator.
Usually if the seal blows thts the end of the pump even if it looks ok!

Water leak

Sorry to say but that's more than likely the water pump. The water pump is located in the timng line. You will have to take the timing belt off to change the water pump. While you're changing the pump you may as well chang the timing belt so you don't have to go through that job twice.

Hope this helps. Good luck.
