Yeah, that's a fuel pump. Looks like a Facet cube type, or some similar brand.

Generally those are reliable, but if you are new to the car, who knows how old it is or the condition of the electrical connections.
If you can, put a test light or meter between the hot wire and ground to see if there is voltage.

Right - Most likely the pump simply isn't getting current. It is less likely that the pump has failed. It could be bad, but I wouldn't buy a replacement until I verified that the wiring is OK.

Note that this isn't the factory pump. Facet pumps are sold everywhere - your local auto parts chain carries them. If you have carbs (and I'm betting that you do), you want the lowest pressure pump available - like 3 or 4 psi.
