Did you have your boat winterized (e.g. the livewell)? Sometimes there is a on/off lever in the bilge or place where  the livewell drains  that shuts off the system and it is in the off position.

Could be pump failure. Could be switch or wiring. Best to check to see if you have power at the pump. Be careful of sparks when testing down there. Use an ohm meter to check 12v. If you have power there and pump is bad most of the time it’s not a big deal to replace.

ED;

Make sure your meter is set to read volts DC, if it is set to ohm's, you will likely blow up the ohm's portion of the meter. 

 

good luck!
