I'm pretty sure the interval for these is every 8 years or 100k miles (whichever comes first), so yeah I'd get it changed.

The waterpump is driven off the aux belt on these engines, so no need to worry about replacing it at the same time as the belt. The only reason people change the waterpump at the same time as the cambelt is because the cambelt has to come off anyway should the pump fail at a later date.
