Help Alfa 156 2.0 ts Problems with power and coolant water

hi id like to ask about my car. i own it for more than a year and i recognized now when i was on highway and i wanted to go faster so it was on 3rd gear 70mph so i pushed the throttle to the floor and car goes like 10 miles normally but then it didnt wanted to go more it was like the car cant breath or something then i tried it on every gear and its the same problem when i push the throttle to the floor the car dont want to go i was thinkin about fuel pump that maybe there goin less petrol or something but now i found that i have to top up the coolant water to the radiator more often its like 2times in month so now i thinkin about the head gasket but im not sure cause the oil is fine there is no water in oil theres nothing white goin out of the exhaust so i dont know maybe is it the fuel pump for the power and with the water it may be other problem like there's hole somewhere in the radiator or something im not sure thats why i wanted to ask if someone had this problem or can help me cause i have many ideas but i need to be sure and now i dont have a time to go find out with some servis the car is drivin perfectly nothing wrong only when i wanna go faster then its like it cant breath. so if someone ever had this kind of problems or are sure whats the problem let me know. thank you
