saturns running hot on 2002 Saturn Vue

it first started off making a whistling noise when it was cold...then it started doing it all the time...now it's running hot on short distances and the radiater light comes on...i'm wondering if the raditer has to be replaced???

Is the coolant leaking out? Are the fans working when the car gets hot? Is there something blocking the air flow in front of the radiator? Don't drive it when it gets hot, pull over and let in cool down or you risk severe engine damage. Get back to me. GL
