The hose from the top of the radiator to the water pump area look like it is going to blow, but the hose to the thermostat is fine.
Do you

Very common problem with hoses. Have seen it with other vehicles as well. I call it the Anaconda. Replace the hose before it blows up.

If it has the factory hoses on it, replace them all. Would also be a good time to flush the system, replace the thermostat and the water pump, timing belt and tensioner unless they have been done recently (service interval on the belt is around 70,000 miles and it drives the water pump so if you need one you do both just to same some money).
