Smile Could it be my thermostat?

Two mornings ago I woke up to find a puddle of anti-freeze under my car. I know my expansion tank is leaking slightly but the puddle was underneath the front of the oil pan as if the water pump was leaking via the weep hole. So today I refilled the expansion tank (about 1 gallon) and let the car run in my driveway. After reaching temp I could see no leaks or mist coming from arount the water pump. So I took her for a drive I noticed as I got up to around 60 the temp started to rise above 87 but not too high, somewhere just less than 100. But when I slowed the temp went back down to 87. I then parked the car again no leaks or mist. Could this be attributed to a bad thermostat or is my water pump done for?
