No. If the truck is overheating then maybe the water pump is the problem but I am guessing that there is a problem with the starter.

It depends, usually a broken water pump doesn't stop an engine from starting. Check the oil first. It could also be a spun bearing and also a lot of other causes. Go see a mechanic, ask a handy neighbor, you shouldn't try to start it anymore.
