what is your oil like ? or is your radiator cap stuffed and it is dropping collant when the system is under pressure down the overflow hose... ?

Heater tap under your inlet manifold? look on your block for water/coolant stains, under the exhaust shield, have a look there to.

i'd be checking the radiator cap and the heater tap for signs of coolant leak.
