Mine sounds exactly like yours. I am having it replaced along with the thermostat, on Monday. Parts and labor by an indy $800. My car has close to 36K miles on it. I noticed the noisy pump after replacing the coolant and during the bleeding procedure. Luckily noticed it before an overheating incident.
I would not start the car again unless pump and thermostat is replaced.
