Default Water Pump

Alright, for the past week i had a really annoying belt squeak, today i finally got time to investigate, thinking it was either my idler pulley or tensioner pulley. I sprayed wd40 on them and the squeak was still there.
So then i sprayed it on the water pumps input shaft, and the squeak stopped.

Now i just replaced my waterpump last September/October. Could this be a sign that its already going bad?

Yep, sounds like a bearing problem. There should be some kind of warranty on the pump. Do you still have your receipt?
