So if could be I bot a faulty pump two weeks ago

That can happen, especially today with "made in china" (or wherever) parts. Do or have some electrical testing done before you condemn the pump though. Is this a fuel pump?
YouTube has videos on electrical testing of the fuel pump circuit. You will need a voltmeter. A digital volt-ohm meter (DVOM) is a multi-meter most used in auto testing. A Fluke brand is most expensive, but many brands are quite inexpensive. I have used a Sears Craftsman multi-meter for several years, only paid about $30 for it-works great.
Is the pump inside the gas tank? Then definitely do the electrical tests to see if your pump is the problem.
