I have a leak at the top of the radiator. Temperature gauge goes straight up to hot when I turn on the ignition key. After I fix the leak, will I have to replace the sensor as well?

You may have to replace the head gasket too. Have a leak down test done to confirm the head gasket is not damaged from the overheating
