pics would help, but if you have water that got under neath the gel coat to the fiber glass that is a problem. I wouldnt put it back in water for sure or will just take in more water, and all that water has to be removed before you would be able to do any repair.
I am sure some will chime in with pics.

yeah.. leaking water is not good. You probably would want to fix that. Fine sanding, Marine-tex and some more fine sanding will do the trick.
I ran over a reef with my first jet ski. Happens..

Really though, Steven is right you have to get the water out. It has to be totaly dry before you can repair anything. If you have water dripping out of any cracks it is an issue but can be fixed. I suggest you tilt the ski up if on a trailer and put a fan on the effected area. Post some pics and we can help you better.
Heres a link to my latest carnage.
