For leaking fix/replace the gasket and no that's not your problem.
You've got to tell us what type engine you have, whether or not the seacock for raw water is for sure open, if you have a strainer and whether of not it's clear, we can't help without a lot more information.
In the meantime - check your seacock and strainer, after the impeller those are your most likely problems.
