Hopefully its only a bad water pump but it needs checked out by a qualified mech ASAP. If the chain/belt goes it will be costly to correct.

1997 Nissan sentra DOHC 1.6 liter dual timing chain, upper & lower timing chains where r the timing marks supposed to be positioned to in order to perfectly be in time


I believe you have to make your own marks before you remove the chain so you can line it back up.
I just checked on alldata and thats the only thing they showed about timing marks.
