uhm if the water pump is putting air in youre coolant system

then youre water pumps seals are gone the same thing happen to my

1996 Honda accord i took it out and found out the seals were gone

so the breather for it was sucking in air and letting it all in the

cooling system so id change it

It's possible, but if it happened there wouldn't be much and it

wouldn't really be under pressure. Also, if that's going on you'll

loose coolant when the engine is first turned off.

If you are blowing out coolant because of pressurized "air",

it's most typically a blown headgasket and you're getting exhaust

gas into the coolant chamber.
