You dont say how or what it is for sure . But turn pump off and get some of the PVC glue. cover the leak good and let dry. Or get small piece of pvc pipe that fits over the leak and cut it to fit over the leak and glue it on.

sounds like your describing the nipple thar threads into the discharge [ top] side of the pump, if this is indeed where your leak is, you will have to replace it, use either a 11/2 " x close or 2 " x close brass nipple and female adpter put a ss clamp around the female adapter before threading onto the nipple and don't over tighten the female adapter of brass nipple into the pump, if you don't have enough room use a cpvc nipple [ rated for high temperature ] ideally you need to install a check valve before the pump and add a union before the pump [ suction side] and after the pump [return side]
