2003 Chevy Cavalier Won't start

recently changed water pump and thermostat and now the car will not start but when refilling the resevoir, water seems to be coming out of the side of the motor that the water pump is but more to the front. Is it possible that the head gasket is blown?

    Well if the water is leaking from the cylinder head-to-black joint, then sure the gasket could be blown and your car is unlikely to start. Was it running prior, or did it overheat badly and die on you?
