Question Kitten Drinking!!!!

I just got a kitten that was an outside cat. I got him on May 3. He seems to be doing fine but her crys alot. Alot of his crying is for attention becuase when we pick him up and love on him he is fine. But I have noticed that I do not see him drinking alot. I have one of those water bowls that you fill up and than when the bowl gets empty it fills up on its own. But when I stick his head down to the water or even of I put my finger in the water he does not seem to be interested. He goes to the bathroom okay that I can tell his liter box is wet everyday. I feed him kitten food along with some soft (wet) food. I was wondering if someone could tell me how to tell if he is drinking engough or how to get him to drink in front of us. Should I buy an eyedropper and force him to drink. And if you could help me on him crying alot. Should I just let him cry (just like you would a baby) and let him realize that I can not hold and love on him all day long becuase I have things to do also. I mean is this normal for kittens or what. Thank you for you help I appreciate it!
