I have already changed the thermostat. The water is leaking out somewhere which part do I need to get? The waterpump? Or is a hose? I need help!

Do you

I would get my cooling system pressure tested. This is the quickest/easiest/cheapest way to tell where the leak is coming from. I would do this test before I replaced any parts.

How much will that cost me to get cooling system pressure tested?

Shouldn't be too much. It should take around 1 hr or less. It is worth it though because you will know exactly what is causing the leak (except in rare cases where you still can't pinpoint it).
