the hood the belt was off I have problems

The shaft on the power steering pump is shot, time for a new pump. You will need to rent a pulley puller to remove the pulley off the pump, if you are doing the repair. That might have contributed to the wear on the water pump shaft if the leak is out of the water pump. So replace both, and get a new belt.
