Could be a blown head or head gasket, Have it block checked, that way you will know for sure. If it is it won't be cheap.

Worse case, head gasket. Best case, radiator. $350.oo to $1500.00

Some people was saying it could be the hoses or a leak somewhere... I called the mechanic that does stuff on cooling systems I explained the same thing here and they said could be a leak somewhere..they never said anything about a head gasket

Take it to a shop you trust, have them pressure test the system, see if a leak shows up, if it don't then opt for the block check.
