It's possible you may have an air pocket in the cooling system that needs to be purged. Also, the problem could be with the thermostat. Don't run the engine too long with it overheating. You could do damage to the cylinder heads.

What all should I replace while replacing the water Pump on my 2000 ford contour

That's a very good question...but I gather that this car has been taken care of and should be in very good shape and with economy the way it is..I see no reason to get a new car...My advice..Just get the water pump replaced and happy motoring....and don't let any mechanic try to sell you something that you don't need...I'm sure that you've heard the expression"If it ain't broke...don't fix it."..I hope this was heplful...PEACE.....
