Need more information other than light and smoke, like what gauge was reading wrong and where exactly was the smoke coming from, was to smoke or steam, stuff like that.

To start it sounds terrible now and not starting. Did not pay attention to which gauge. Ran the car for a while no lights came on but there seems to be a leak from radiator. The smoke was actually on the left when you are looking at the car head on. Hope it is not my engine

That doesn't sound good, if it got too hot then you could have done some serious engine damage and if it makes bad sounds just cranking then the likely hood of it being engine damage is greatly increased, I would recommend having it towed to a shop you trust and have it checked out, don't attempt to drive it as you may make a bad thing worse.
