2004 honda civic ex cooling system problems on 2004 Honda Civic

the car runs at the right temp. the only thing i see wrong is that the coolant is going in to my radiator overflow tank and not going anywhere. After a long drive the coolant will spray out of the cap on the overflow tank. i also see that i have small bubbles when the cars warm and on but also after i turned the car off for about 5 mins. i have changed my radiator cap and the thermostat

IS THE COOLING FAN WORKING AFTER THE CAR IS WARMED UP. THE BUBBLES COULD BE A SIGN OF A LEAKING HEADGASKET.

yes fans are ok, how long till death if i keep running it like this if head gasket is bad, also can a bad cooling system cause a transmission to heat up and jack up the bearings
