The bearing on the pump can go south without leaking...for now. You could also just be getting some WD-40 on the belt, and covering a loose belt noise. If it is the pump it will eventually start leaking. Take the belt off and rotate the pulley, all the pulleys. They should all roll smoothly. Feel for play back/forth, side/side around the WP pulley. There should not be any play.

 

Simple to replace a water pump...and they're not expensive. Just make sure you buy a NEW pump, not a re-manufactured pump.

Thanks guys I'm going to give those things a try.I might just start with a new belt it looks like it's been on there awhile if not then the pump. Is the pump hard to change out?What do you think about these high flow pumps?
