Default 99 Catera. Low oil pressure starts to overheat.

Picked up this car for only $500 from my great aunt and today it decides to lose oil pressure and start to overheat and stalls. At 49K this shouldn't be happening! What's going on here?!

It's a 99 anything can happen. Checking fluid levels is where to start? Are the oil and coolant levels full? If not can you see where fluid is leaking? Not that this is the cause but was timing belt recall done and coolant should have been changed at least once.
