Weird problem after getting new battery

This is really weird to me but I am not good with cars to begin with. Her it is last week my wifes car's battery was dead when she went to go to work. That night jumped it and ran it for 30 minutes, turned it off and restarted fine. The next morning the same thing, yesterday took the battery to Pep boys and had it tested it started to boil over and was leaking out of the caps on the batery the guy told me he never saw that so early in a test and told me it was a bad battery. This morning my wife said on the way to work it knocking clicking noise. The car is a 92 olds achieva. Any help would be appriciated, also altinator is only 8 months old????

Sounds like a possible over charge.
I would test alternator.
Just because it is only 8 months old doesn't mean it's still good.

I agree with Bill. Sounds like an overcharging alternator among other troubles.
