Low Coolant Level But Not Overheating

So after driving back from Vegas to L.A. and going about 120 the entire time, I received a Check Coolant Level. The next day I filled it with 50/50, opened the hood and noticed a green splash of the old coolant across the top front engine. After a week the car never over heated but I still took it in. They say the water pump is leaking and there is a cracked hose. The water pump is rather new, the cracked hose I understand. What should I do? They want $450 to replace both.
