New owner, need info

New owner of a 4 bay car wash. Had it hit freezing temperatures last night, and my weep system didnt run enough water at one point and froze. After some thawing, water was running through the hose after I pulled the gun off and I thawed out the gun. I went to try my system and switched to my pump (Cat 310). It froze back up apparently or something as nothing came out. I only turned it on for a second, but when I pulled the gun back off the water dibbled out, but it is now black. I feel like I have now broken something on the pump, but what and how bad??

Sorry for the long post, thanks for reading and any help.

Don't think it would be pump damage as there should be an unloader/relief valve in line that should keep the pump from damaging during something such as a frozen gun or plugged tip.
