LEAKING COOLANT

2003 Dodge Stratus

Engine Cooling problem
2003 Dodge Stratus 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 90,000 miles

what are the symptoms of a bad thermostat, I just recently put in a new water pump thinking that was the promblem but when I drive it the tempature gauge goes a little above a quarter and when I shut it off its bubbling in the coolant resevoir and I can hear steam coming out from somewhere by the radiator like all the coolent is gettin pushed to the radiator and not the engine or something and if so is there a overflow thing on the radiator cause now its starting to leak somewhere in the front of the car like by the radiator. Can Someone please help, so the question is can a Bad thermostat make my coolant leak or could it be a bad head gasket
