How to tell the water pump is going bad?

So I'm loving my new to me 07 990. Hopefully going to get my brakes sorted out this weekend, but other than that the bike is running great!

But I am preparing myself for the inevitability that the water pump is going to go bad (I'm pretty certain it hasn't been changed by any previous owners). The only problem is, I don't know how to tell it's going bad. I've read something about milky oil? I assume you see that during an oil change, but at that point have you already done any damage? Is there any other way to tell?

***P.S. I did see some water dripping out of one of the hoses the other day, but it smelled/felt/tasted like water. Not sure where the hose was running from, I assume maybe the radiator or something? Just some moisture condensing/getting pushed out?
