Sounds like perhaps the water pump is bad, allowing coolant to escape through the weep hole in the water pump. Without more information as to where the water is leaking, you might also be looking at a head gasket leak which is causing overheating. Pressure test the cooling system and see if it holds proper (13-16 PSI) and if there is enough coolant in it to keep it from overheating.
