Is it normal after the bike is laid up for the winter for the pump to weep a lil bit?Started my 07 yz450 today since last september just to try her and after it was running a few seconds a lil bit of antifreeze came out around the pump,I couldn't see if it was the vent hole but it dripped from the bottom bolt which I think is the drain bolt.I checked the rads and they are full.Just wondering if it a common thing or am I gona have pump seal problems later.

It can happen. If it continues, you'll need to fix it.
