2007 Toyota Camry heating problem

I have a 2007 Toyota Camry with eratic heating. When I use my car starter to start my car to let it warm up the heat works just fine! But when I turn the key on and drive the car the blower blows cold air. But if I go above 30 the heat will start to come back. If the car is running in park there is no heat just blowing cold air! I hope some one can help! The faster the car goes the quicker the heat will return!

2007 you say? let me show you some pictures:



and this one just to tease you:


basically, I have 2.4L 07 Camry engine, paired with hybrid drive. Water pumps in those go bad around 50 000 miles. some sort of bad design flaw. look for signs of coolant , like you see on pics.
you go faster - RPMs go up - coolant circulation improves - more heat. BAD PUMP.
yes, that's home smoked chicken and salmon caviar.
