Can check on the back and see if the water pump was replaced , that's driven by the timing belt , and if it was replaced , odds are pretty good they did the t-belt.
Yes, the best answer is to replace it. Along with the timing belt and water pump, I would recommend that the tensioner and cam and crank seals be replaced as well. Also all the drive belts and the valve cover gasket since that has to be removed.
