Yes that is the water pump, and that hose is fitted over the outlet, inside the outlet is the thermostat.

Try and tighten the hose clamp first. Worse case scenario is that you are loosing the water pump. In which case you will need a water pump and gasket and I recommend a new thermostat, new timing belt, balance belt and rollers. And heck while your in there check all of your front seals.

BTW if you need to change the water pump you will need to have the belts retensioned as well, so you may as well just replace them as well. Also be carefull with the pump bolts they rust and break off easily.
