Is the level dropping consistently even after you've been adding distilled water to the resevoir?

I say for the time being add distilled water to the radiator to full and add water to the resevoir to full, then watch for trouble.

If you find the coolant level for both falling as the miles go by, chances are you got a coolant leak somewhere. Look at the base of the radiator on the drivers side and/or under the headers. Those two areas have the coolant plugs to drain the system.

If after adding water/coolant the levels remain constant than the dealer(?) probably didn't fill the system to capacity. No biggie but worth a mention next visit.

Good luck.
