Getting fresh water system working

Found a few threads about the fresh water system but still have a few questions. On my new to me 1990 48 Californian MY I spent a night on the boat with some water issues. The water gauge shows full but no water. The water pump runs continuously. A strainer right before the water pump never had any water in it. So I put some water in the system via a hose with the water inlet on the side of the boat. Probably 25 gallons or so. Never got anything working. So,
Question 1 - Work on the idea the water gauge probably doesn't work, so if I put water in the systems is there an overflow hose that I should find somewhere? Question 2 - Would the system need primed?, fill the strainer and open a faucet? Question 3 - I'm guessing but the water pump is probably at the same level as the middle of the tank, so no priming required?
