I removed the timing belt cover and found one of the screw that is holding the oil pump had a minor oil leak through the thread. Can I remove this screw and apply HT liquid gasket in the the thread?

RTV silicone sealer is just fine. Remember that it is activated by exposure to air, so apply it to the bolt, then wait 5 minutes before re-installing the bolt.

RTV is an acronym for "Room Temperature Vulcanizing" silicone, meaning it dries at room temperature. RTV is a rubber polymer. Similar to epoxy, it is made of the base rubber material plus a curative that is activated by exposure to air. The best-known use of RTV silicone is as a sealer in home construction. But the properties of this versatile material make it ideal for many applications.
