new water pump leaking??

Hello, my water pump is no more... so yesterday I replaced it with a new one, strange thing the easiest part for me was taking off the shroud and fan. any way I installed my new pump and went home, cause I was at a friendīs house.
Today I woke up to put some more coolant to the rad... and found out it was leaking from the weep hole...at least thatīs what I think... the leak itīs at the bottom of the pump behind the crank pulley. I have a 4.0 I6 GC.

Do you think that maybe I bought a bad pump or is t just the sealing???

thanks

if it is truely leaking from the weep hole, I believe that is a sign of a bad bearing.
