Sudden overheating problem PLEASE HELP!!!

Today I was cruising down the highway about 80mph and noticed the engine light come on and looked at the guages as I saw the temp was in the red. I immediatly pulled over and shut the engine off. Popped the hood and noticed a little coolant not alot on the passenger side. There is still coolant in the resevoir. After I got it home and it cooled down I started it back up. All fans work. Couldnt see any leaks. The top hose on the driver side was very warm but the lower hose on the passenger side was not? Also no heat comes out the heater? Could this be a thermostat? Any other ideas and tests I could perform would be greatly appricated.
