05 impala 3.4l water pump

I have a 2005 base Impala, 3.4l engine. After a drive to vegas from Denver I noticed that the car was leaking coolant. I am in no way a mechanic but it seems to be coming out of the water pump. I need to know how hard would it be to change the water pump, and if this sounds like a water pump issue. Also do I need any "special" tools or knowledge that would help? Thanks for an assistance on this...

It's about the easiest water pump you could ever have to change.

With the belt still on, loosen the water pump pulley bolts. Remove belt. Remove pulley. Remove the 5 bolts retaining the water pump, then pull the pump off the motor (coolant will then spill out). Clean off the old gasket. Put it all back together and fill the coolant.

These pumps normally take me about 15 minutes to change.
