Punto steering problems

i have a mk1 1.2 16v sporting punto. The steering has started going funny today, seems like the front of the car is drifting to the left. My steering goes a slight bit heavey, not do heavy, but can feel it in the wheel. How could i tell if the pump was on the way out ??? or could it be down to something else. the arms have been checked and theres no movement ??
