Yes. Has the timing belt been replaced recently? The water pump is located behind the timing belt on your car, I believe. The timing belt has a 60,000 to 90,000 mile lifespan, might as well replace it while you have it off.
To get to it, you need to take off the serpentine belt, move any accessories such as A/C, alternator, ect. Out of the way in order to remove the timing belt covers. Then you can take off the timing belt and water pump.
When you replace the timing belt, make sure you align the crankshaft and camshafts correctly and properly tension the timing belt. Let us know.
