Default Radiator/Water Pump Issue?? Leaking Rusty Water. please help

Bought the truck from my uncle, was sitting year & a 1/2, brought it back to life. Everything was great for a while.. until today.. I've got a horrible screeching from what I assume is my AC Condenser .. truck overheated on me for the first time.. checked fluid.. coolants ok in radiator.. but looks rusty.. and most of all when I got home and parked the front end was leaking Rusty coolant or water horribly.. another note.. seems like I have no pressure in my upper radiator hose.. or any for that matter.. and upon further inspection.. my radiator appears rusty on bottom drivers side corner and fins on driver side have the green tint..

Ill try and post pics of leak site.. & Radiator Rust.. thanks for your time guys.
