My water pump was recently changed about 4 months ago, now there is a small continuous leak coming from behind the water pump. Is this the timing chain cover? and if so are there any tricks to pulling of the cover to change the gasket?

Did you contact the shop that replaced the pump?
Cannt tell from your post what year or which engine, I assume a 3.8. I would pressure test the system first to confirm the location of the leak. There are lot of videos online showing timing chain and tensioner replacement and if you have to pull the cover you might want to consider replacing the chain, tensioner, and guides.
