Default Bad fuel pump?

I have a walboro fuel pump in my 03 wrx for about 10k miles now. Lately the pump is makeing a wierd noise at primeing, not the normal whineing but sort sounds like a jammed starter. I had problems starting up the car today after a lot of upgrades new clutch, red, hydra and she just wont start. i pulled the fuel hose off (the one from the filter in the egine bay) to see how far it would shoot as i dont have a pressure reg, it only shot about 6 inches at prime is this normal? i thought there was way more pressure than that. Any help is appreciated.
