you got alot of water in the oil I'm thinking, that's what happens to your oil when you get water in it.

Can't be the water pump seal. If it leaks, the coolant runs into a space between the impeller shaft oil seal and the coolant seal. That space leads out to the hole below the water pump.

The leak points are:

Head gasket

Cylinder base O-ring

Right crankcase cover water passage O-ring

Very rarely, a cracked component or a leaky jacket plug in the cam box.
