why does my water heater pilot go out when it is windy?

The pilot keeps going out when we have high winds. The water heater is in the garage and the doors have a pretty good seal on them.
Also, should there be soot in the bottom?

Just wind blowing down the exhaust pipe. Not good, actually. You'll need a Rain-Cap on the exhaust pipe. This will stop the wind path and ensure exhaust gases aren't filling up the garage.
