If the connection goes bad the gauge usually goes full scale, so way past the full mark, as yours is reading empty that usually means either a sunk or broken float or a grounded out circuit someplace in the fuel gauge circuit.

do you think I need a new fuel pump?

No as it does run ok, Right? If it is not a grounded wire, then most likely just a float on the sender arm.
