How long did the engine not run before you observed the leak.
If an engine has not been run for a considerable time some corrosion may 
develop on the sealing surface. This will cause some initial leaking 
that usually disappears after some driving. The same with a new water 
pump, which is likely to leak a bit until the mating surfaces have 
bedded in.
