Hello and thank you for using just answer. The water pump is not likely bad. Since the pumps are driven by the belt, they do not typically fail, unless they leak. Since the vehicle is only overheating when sitting still, but not while the vehicle is moving, the problem is most likely going to be in the radiator fan.

The radiator fan kicks in and then the vehicle continues to overheat.
