Why is my car getting hot and radiator leaking
Car is getting hot because the radiator is leaking, low coolant. Get the radiator repaired.
You need radiator fluid to cool the engine. When it is low due to a leak, it will not flow fast enough to cool the =radiator fluid and keep the engine cool. Do what Rowefast suggested, and fix the leak. It may just be a radiator hose, or water pump. A hose replacement is far less expensive that a new radiator. A hot engine will freeze up and it could cost near 5 to 10 grand to replace it.
