There are many different places oil can leak from and it can be difficult to find.
I would suggest if you want to try and find it yourself, go by your local auto parts store and get some Oil Dye and you will need a black light.
Before putting the dye in clean the engine.
Then put dye into the oil, run vehicle for 15 minutes or so. Turn vehicle off and with black light look all around engine till you see a floresent green dye.
And to answer the water pump question. The places it can leak are around some of the bolts. Some of the bolts go into a oil jacket.
Hope this helps
