You need to find a mechanic quickly. The engine is overheating, severe damage is possible.

Maybe it's a "California thing" but I really don't understand the post above. Is it a question ? What kind of car ? What year ?

Did you open the hood to see if there was coolant in the overflow tank? When was the coolant last changed?

Welcome, the Dexcool needs to be replaced every 5 years, when was it last changed ?
If you don’t know or have PO service records, have the cooling system drained and refilled.
