The purpose of water pump in a car engine is to circulate engine coolant through the engine block and cylinder head to keep the temperature on required level.The water pump is a serpentine belt or timing belt driven engine accessory attached with the engine.
If the coolant leak is small and the coolant level doesn’t reduces suddenly then yes you can drive the car but keep in mind small leak can turn into big leak at any time and if the coolant level reduces to the level where its not sufficient to keep the engine temperature at required level, it can overheat the engine and chances of head gasket failure are very high and you end up paying large repairing bill.
