If the coolant is disappearing and there are no leaks then it is likely going out the tailpipe. A failed head gasket could be the cause.

Did you just put new radiator in? If so its possibly just air in the system. Did you belch all the air out when work was complete? If unsure try refilling radiator to see if problem goes away.
