Where is it leaking antifreeze from? Sounds like that leak needs to be fixed.
Heater blowing cold air is probably due to no or low coolant.

Check your heater hoses and check also inside of cab. Start to check all coolant lines from radiator to radiator. When you change parts I think you forgot to connect one coolant hose.
