I think top is inlet and the bottom is where the coolant goes back out to the engine to help keep it cool.

Top inlet from engine.
Bottom outlet to engine.
If you think about it for a minute that's the only way it can be
or the engine would overheat if the radiator was low.

So take the bottom one off the radiator to flush the radiator and engine block right? Also do you take a pair of pliers and squeeze the metal tabs on the hose clamp to get it loose? The book I have doesn't tell me anything about these things. I remember the clamps always being the screw down type. Thanks very much for the help I appreciate it.

Those metal clamps on each hose should require a flat head screwdriver to remove them. You shouldn't need pliers to remove the clamps that I think you're referring to. My Camaro has clamps on my radiator hoses and I use a flat head to loosen and remove them.

If you have the worm screw clamps either a flat head or appropriate sized socket to remove them. If they're GMs favorite spring clamps then yes a pair of pliers will do. For larger ones like radiator hose clamps I suggest vise grips...reduce the chances of them springing back and taking a chunk of skin with them... -_-
