I agree with both of the above but just want to add that if you just spot point the problem area, the mortar color will not match.  It’s almost impossible to match the original color, which also has 100 years of grime on top of it.  So, while you certainly must fix your leak, just be prepared for unsighly mis-matched mortar.  We did this when we bought our house, and later, when we could afford it, we repointed the whole house.
