The overheating probably came from the coolant being too low. The coolant in the reservoir won't go back into the radiator if the coolant in the radiator is too low. Until you get it fixed, check and fill up the radiator every time you want to use it. Overheating is very bad for engines and can cause expensive engine repairs.
Where is it leaking, from the engine or the radiator? You didn't say, but wherever it is leaking is the place to start. If at the radiator, and it is not a loose or leaking hose, I would be looking for a new radiator. If it is leaking at the front of the engine and dripping down from there, you could have a bad water pump. This could be an expensive repair at a shop-not the pump itself-they are not too expensive-but the labor cost in replacing a water pump will add up.
The thermostat would not cause it to leak. But when all is said and done, you will want a new thermostat, after the leak is fixed. They are very cheap and it is just good insurance.

I have a 2007 GMC Envoy, was running rough,got a code to replace my msf sensor and plugs,disconnected battery replaced sensor & plugs in order.connected my battery,now it's running worse than before.
Some cars/trucks/SUVs need about 30 miles of driving time to load all the new parts you replaced info into ecu so somtimes runs rough until that process is clear . Also there are different ways to reset your cars computer . The best way I found to be really effective is disconnecting both battery cables and connect a jumper wire between them . But make sure they are clear or the battery of course . Leave the jumper connected for a few minutes then hook em back up and start your engine and go drive around for 20 minutes . Another way is to disconnect the POS. battery cable and turn everything on inside while holding the brake pedal. What it is by doing all this is draining the stored power in the computers capacitors that keep the memory fresh . You want it to forget the defective part and recognize the new one .hope this helps you I know how frustrating these things can be.
