Yes. Before you do, remove cap on rad when engine is cool & top it up too, if needed. Keep an eye on temperature gauge for a day or 2 & coolant bottle level, just in case there is another problem.

SOURCE: coolant spits out of reservoir
This is normally a sign of a leaking head gasket which is blowing pressure into the coolant system. Have a radiator repair facility confirm this, they have equipment to detect exhaust contamination in the coolant.

Did you check the water pump? The hose should be firm when you cold start the vehicle since the thermostat is not open. Once the thermostat opens the coolant will flow provided the thermostat is working and installed in the correct orientation. Make sure the pulley for the water pump is turning and not frozen.
