Keep a check on it to see how fast it looses coolant. May try putting some cardboard under engine area to see if you spot any leaks, look for damp areas around engine. Check you floor board for dampness as a heater core may leak there. Otherwise check to see if you tailpipe (exhaust) is blowing white smoke (steam). Check your oil to see if it has a milky look to it or if underside of oil filler cap is milky looking.
