Power steering failure...please help

Hi all,

Driving home tonight I started hearing slight noises from the front of the car when the wheel was being turned. Got progressively worse during the journey, made it home but steering has become very heavy. I checked the fluid and it is right up near the max mark where it should be so I assume no leaks.
Topped up to max with new fluid which just appeared to sit ontop of what was in there and the old fluid isnt clear, its a brown colour.
Started engine up and turned steering wheel with car stationary and it is a bit stiff but makes horrible noise and is juddering.
Any ideas please people? Is it the pump or are there more parts involved that could cause this?
After various problems since buying the car Im thinking this could be it, please help.
