Recent Water Pump questions

I have a 2004 Chevy Silverado 1500 5.3 V8 extended can 4x4.

I have a 2004 Chevy Silverado 1500 5.3 V8 extended can 4x4. Just recently my truck started overheating when I press on the gas to speed up and get going. Once I am at a constant speed or slowing down, the temp goes back to normal range. Would this be a thermostat problem or ?

I just replaced water pump on Chevy 2500 Express cargo van.

I just replaced water pump on Chevy 2500 Express cargo van. When I added coolant back I didn't get full 5 quarts in, only about 2.5-3 quarts. Now everything seems to be ok, no coolant leak, but after warming up it starts to overheat. It was not over heating at all before replacing water pump, it was only leaking coolant.
