Take it back to the mechanic. That should be a no brainer. The sad part is it sounds like you supplied your own parts, so if your water pump was bad out of the box you'll probably have to pay for the labor for them to replace it. I'm a mechanic at a Ford dealer and we warranty parts and labor for 12 months 12,000 miles, unless that is, the customer supplied there own parts. Likely not your water pump though. I bet someone forgot to tighten a clamp. Whining noise could possibly be overtightened timing belt. Couldn't tell you without looking at it though.
