Some possible anagrams for the answer:

I think its SLATE Explanation:
1) My 1,5,3 ia a body of water: SEA–> 1=S, 5= E, 3= A
2) My 3,2,5 is a liquor: ALE( soft beer) –> 2= L
3) My 5,3,1,4 is a point of the compass: EAST–> T= 4
4) My 3,4 is a preposition: AT
5) My 1,5,3,2 is a sea creature: SEAL
so: SLATE
