Pouring Coolant after Squeak

So here's the situation. 93 4 banger yj has been squealing a little and on the way home from class to try and tighten the belt, it got suddenly worse. Then suddenly better, then suddenly a LOT of coolant. So much so that I didn't know where it was coming from.... literally the inside of the hood, the battery, the oil pan all the way to the intake plentum, all soaking wet. Oddly the radiator and the top hose are dry as a bone... so i guess i'll count my blessings. I have no idea where to start besides dry it off and pressurize.
Anybody experienced this? Is the squealing belt/pulley maybe unrelated and I'm just crazy?
Thanks
TJ

That's what my common sense said, but It has steered me wrong before. Thanks
So pulley is fine? Just need to pony up the $40 and bruised knuckles for the pump?

when you get the new pump.. ask them for the stud kit to go along with it.. you will swear at it a whole lot less if you just replace the old ones with new ones.

I know it seems obvious that it's the water pump but make sure it's not something else as well or instead... T-stat or t-stat housing (which I just replaced and that made quite a mess) or even heater core hose... Bottom coolant hose as well. With the pressure the system builds it can shoot quite a mess.
