Question Dumping Coolant + Not starting without starter fluid

I recently bought my first bike on craigslist as a project bike. It was sitting outside on the street for a year, so I emptied the tank, put on new plugs and got new fuel in it. It turned over, but won't start unless you spray a bit of starter fluid in the intake. After it got warmed up for a few minutes, I took it around the block and when I got back, it was dumping green (coolant?) fluid. The leak was very large, even made a small puddle. What do you guys think? Do you think they are related? I haven't cleaned the carb but will do that next.
