Could be a couple of things, as you are hearing coolant boiling in the water pump I would be suspicious of it not flowing, it could be the impellers are corroded especially in a rig that old, the next would be the thermostat not opening fully, and finally the radiator is restricted.

So what I should do what do I need or what do I need to buy to fic this issues problem of my car?

If your comfortable working your own rig I would start with the thermostat and the water pump as that is where you hear the noise. You should always replace the thermostat anytime you do any cooling system repairs.
