Fairly new, about 15k miles on it. My guess was when it was installed, it wasn't installed correctly... Could be multiple other factors, I just want it to be fixed so there is no dilution in my oil.

installation has nothing to do with a shaft seal leaking...

So is that 2 months or 10 years?
I don't tell people my age by telling them how many miles I have walked

I believe 1-2 years old, the fella I bought it off of had a new short block installed so a new HPFP was also installed (ford OEM).

Ford parts have a 2 year unlimited mileage warranty. Get with the previous owner and see if he has the paperwork for it.

You are right, I just spoke with the original owner and he gave me the number to the dealership he got it from. They remember selling him the part for his truck but they said that since it was a parts ticket number it stays in the system for 6 months and they cant produce the original invoice. They said if I can get the original receipt from the old owner they would cover the part under warranty. Not sure if he has it or not, any other way I can get around this??

UPDATE, the mechanic doing the work on my truck got my HPFP replaced for free under warranty. I was not expecting this, as any other mechanic would have probably pocketed the $$. The pump was less than two years old and I'm ecstatic about a new pump being put in and not just a seal replacement. Looks like I saved about $1600 in parts!

Watch the oil level. The seals are known to fail even new. There has been ppl going through 3-4 pumps before getting a good one. Good news on warranty though.
