sounds like the weep hole , time for new water pump ?
It's not the waterpumb, the problem was the part the water pump mounts to. It look like it might have been dropped or hit with a hard tool during installation. The hole is a broken edge of that part, making a broken seal so it needs to be welded or sodder to work correctly. ?
It could also be a block or head freeze out plug that is old or damaged. They are very inexpensive and fairly easy to install. To remove an old one, use a hammer and screwdriver and pick one edge and punch it in. Use a pair of pliers and pull it back out sideways or drill a hole through the center and use a dent puller slide and pull that way. To install a new one, find a socket that fits inside of it almost perfectly and as carefully as possible, tap the new one in as straight as you can. Clean the inner surface first with steel wool to remove any deposits and give the new one a good seal.

Will water crack a engine block?

Yes. You can freeze the water, making it expand, or you can add cold water to a hot engine, shocking the block. You prevent freezing with antifreeze. You prevent shock by never adding water to a hot engine. If there is enough water in the engine to have the water pump provide circulation, you can add water SLOWLY, but you should really only add water to a hot engine when there is very little to add.

Kind of. There are water jackets inside the engine block and usually the heads of a liquid-cooled engine Water (or coolant) will either flow from the block to the head to the radiator, or from the radiator through the head to the block (a reverse flow design). The latter is better because it cools the heads first and helps prevent detonation. It also reduces thermal shock to the engine block.
