The leak has to be addressed sooner or latter so you may as well replace the radiator now before it does damage (if it hasn't all ready). Check the thermostat operation (may be stuck). I hope there isn't a blown head gasket problem. a simple chemical test called a "block check" tests for presence of carbon monoxide in the cooling system which would verify head gasket issues.
