look at the bottomside of the unit...there is a "weep" hole that will start dripping if the bearing is about to give way...you could grab the pulley and push it up and down side to side to tell if it has too much/any free play, as these units can wear out on us in a couple 20000 miles or so-

If your water pump was leaking it will again and when they let go they usually really dump a lot of fluid. See First if it is a hose leaking or from the weep hole like jrb said, if it is the pump don't wait to have it fixed.

Are you really a jazzer? Been listening to Jazz my entire livin- got a favorite instrument, like the trombone? Bass walkin' to the snap of beatnik fingers. Flamingo Sketches by miles, Astrophysicist Neil Degrasse Tyson's favorite Jazz...and mine too-
