Have a shop perform a cooling system leak test to ID leaking site/s, or not. If no external leaks are found and cooling system loses pressure, the cylinder head gasket may have failed.

A bad thermostat can also cause overheating, but would not account for loss of coolant. Resolve leak first.

good luck
