Default WAter pump or headgasket?

okay i dunno what this problem could be? i dont smoke and no coolant in oil, but when im stopped at a red the air through my heater vents is cooler than when im driving and the revs are up... someone told me this is headgasket, and i also heard waterpump? could anything be clogged or thermostat i dunno. btw, my waterpump has a tiny leak, and i have to top off coolant level maybe every 2-3 weeks,

if you havnt did timing belt and water pump, now is the time. if its the head gasket then the plugs will be white. pull the plugs and check it. hows your temp gauge

my car went past H, and then shut off while I was on the freeway. I checked the oil. It didnt look milky or bubbly at all.i squeezed the hoses and found no pressure in them.I opened the radiator and noticed there was no coolant,which i found odd cause i topped it off a few days before.I also noticed that a chunk of my radiator cap was inside my radiator.I pulled it out with tweezers.Im worried that maybe there are more fragments of radiator cap inside my radiator.would it effect anything
