My water coolant is dripping from a small hole situated near the water pump , what is the problem pls

What you are describing is the beginning of water pump failure. That little hole is called the weep hole and if coolant comes out that means the pump is failing.

How do I know if I need a new water pump?

there is little weep hole under your water pump and coolant will leak out of it once it needs to be replaced. Your water pump will sometimes make an awful high pitched squeal without leaking which in that case would also require replacing. I'd also suggest checking heater hoses because they can also leak.

Sound commng from front of engine, loss of coolent a little, but not overhheating, a little loss of power sometimes/ the nose sounds loud and clangs a little, could it be the water pump

Sounds like it is the water pump. You can check by looking on the underside of the water pump at the small hole under the pulley. If coolant is coming from this hole, you need to be replacing soon.

I have 2002 YZ 125 and coolent is leaking- so I replaced the gasket on what it looked like a water pump contected to the hose easy 5 to 6 screws selaent and gasket good to go. However that fixed the leak...

your water pump shaft runs threw bearing and seal,and your seal is bad,not to big of job to replace,you can order part off they also have a breakdown of parts picture you can look at to help in seeing what needs to be removed to fix) and it will be ok to ride as long as you do not let the colant run out( no colant =overheat=locked up engine.) so check colant every 5-min of riding untill you fix.....

I have 2002 chevrolet tahoe with 150000 miles that just started pushing out a quart of water every 3 days. just replaced thermostat and have had radiator flushed every 30000 miles . is the problem water...

Try to locate the source of the water loss. If it seems like it is leaking from the front in the center of the engine, then look under the water pump and see if it is coming from the weep hole. If it is coming from that hole the water pump has failed and needs to be replaced. The best time to check it is with the engine hot and sometimes it needs to be running depending on how bad the leak is. If it seems like it is coming from the front of the engine but near the sides check to see if you have a split hose.
