Usually "internal leakage" is caused by overheating the engine (low coolant, bad thermostat, broken hoses) and continuing to drive the engine. The head(s) warp, causing the gasket to fail, or the heads or block can crack if it gets hot enough. After that, the engine will have internal leaking and there isn't anything you can do about it short of a rebuild.

Will your car fix itself after overheating?

Usually it doesn't work like that. You basically need to check why it has been overheated. If it was because of you didn't have enough of coolant than you need to add coolant and check for leakage. If it happened because of the thermostat failure, you need to replace the thermostat and then drive the car. Other things might cause overheating too. PS: You have to be careful when you are dealing with an overheated engine.
