    Overdraft is the noun formed on "to overdraw" it's an overdrawing of your funds - my account is overdrawn.

    You may also hear "in debit", as the opposite of "in credit" which means having funds in the bank. (Technically this is from the bank's point of view, you are in debit because you are in debt to the bank.)
