First I would check the incoming strainer is not blocked, if it`s clear then take the water pump off only two bolts and you will have easy access to the front cover off the water pump, remove face plate and check the impeller is not damaged or spinning on the shaft. If it`s okay try pouring some water into the system above the pump(once replaced) to prime the system.
