It sound like you have two issues here. Check both fluids with the engine off. Is the coolant full? Check both the reservoir and in the radiator cap when engine is cold because opening the radiator when it's hot could cause serious burns.
Check the power steering fluid. Is there any leaks? Some times the dust boots on both ends of the steering gear will start to fill up with fluid if your not able to see any leaks. Any air in the power steering (ie leaks) will cause loss of power assist in the steering and cause growling/whine noises.
