It may be a leaking upper rad. hose or radiator. I suggest to get it repaired immediately, before you overheat the engine. The head gasket could go out easily on this engine, the cyl. head bolts can pull out the thread from the engine block. If that happens you need a new engine, a $ 10,000+ repair.

car must not be driven, it very easy to damage the engine
due to overheating. better to spend $50 on towing that a
new engine!
