I have a water/antifreez leak behind the water pump my water pump is only 5 months old and it been leaking for a month now. Its not running hot but I been told three different things could be wrong so I need your help
Is it leaking from the weep hole or is it from where the pump mounts (bad gasket)?

That is correct.
If you are leaking from the weep hole (which is a small hole, can't miss it.) Look carefully.
Because you are leaking form the weep hole, you will need a new water pump.
I went thru 2 used water pump and both of them were leaking from the weep hole.
I got a new water pump from autozone with lifetime on the water pump and it's now working fine.
Remember when replaceing a water pump you will also need a new water pump gasket and get yourself a seal with it to. I hope this will help because I do have experience with water pump leakage.
