Hello and welcome to justanswer.com,
The short answer is yes these models are known for their head gasket issues. you need to first rule out the easy stuff: you mentioned that the radiator has a small leak, was it enough to cause an air pocket to form in the coolant thus causing an overheat?
are both fans coming on and running long enough?
If all these things are answered and there is no other obvious issues then yes the head gasket is the culprit.
