Water pump failure?

Hey there ladies and gentlemen. So today i was driving my car and a car almost hit me and i downshift and pressed the gas. Next you know my car is not moving, its barley going anywhere. Next thing you know my car turns off at the red light about 4 times in a row. Is it the water pump that is failing? I took a pic of the code that came on. My car had 85xxx miles. Only Mod is catless midpipes and muffler delete. Please let me know . I need to fix this problem ASAP. Thank you in advance.

i hope you have a warranty of some sort that covers water pumps or its going to be an expensive fix. i just had mine replaced and the bill was $1500 including labor...

I know the water pump is around 400. But my father is a mechanic so labor is free

It seems like the water pump / Thermostat, I just replaced mine same symptons yellow sign follow by red sign and reduced power. Like other's stated check coolant also test water pump by trying to bleed there are several DIY's here that provide excellent information. Good luck, price around 550 for both w.pump & thermostat. - I did it myself doable but lenghty if never done.
