Try a new radiator cap (About $5). It might not be holding pressure.

the cap is brand new,it is not losing water it is like i go to town run errands about 35 minutes. The temp gauge is at about half way mark but when i park the water is like boiling like if you were boiling it on the stove, some one told me it was my water pump but i want to flush the radiator first but im not real sure how to burp it and drain it.

See the attached pictures. Open the bleeder with the engine running, while filling the radiator, to purge trapped air in the system. The drain for the radiator is indicated in the picture below.
