Water pump hole

I noticed coolant leaking from my water pump cover. I did fill my radiator and overflow all the way full. I think the overflow should not be all the way full. Is this correct?

I noticed that the coolant is coming out of a small hole at the bottom of the water pump cover. Is this a overflow hole?

Thanks

What model year is your KLR? How many miles on your KLR engine?

Most likely the water pump seals need to be replaced. Be careful.

It is a weep hole so you know if your seals are leaking. Has it been sitting for awhile? Is it cold where you are at? Mine will seep a bit if it sits for months without me running it long enough to warm it.
