Water pump may have gone bad,but continuing to drive it and running it hot again,may have hurt the engine,meaning head damage if you heard sound,s from engine.

No I haven't heard a noise from engine but sounds like it wantvto turn over but dont

Uh oh. May be hydro-locked if coolant got in combustion chamber, or seized just from heat. A knocking sound is always a bad sign. Pull all spark plugs and try to crank over. If coolant shoots out a plug hole, better start surgery, heads off. If it still does not crank over (assuming battery/starter is good) even worse
