Are you cooling fans running? Is your coolant level correct? If so you might have a stuck thermostat, or other cooling issue. If the heads were leaking you would see white smoke out your exhaust, or coolant in your oil,(it would look like a chocolate mikshake). Is your coolant level correct? Get it checked sooner than later, you don't want to cause major damage to your engine.
