Only one thermostat. If you are losing antifreeze, there's a leak - the stuff doesn't evaporate. Pressure test your cooling system and fix it soon. If there's no coolant getting to the heater core to warm you, it's likely that there is very little (if any) coolant getting to the cylinder heads! I've had the heater core plug up too - more than once! But there wasn't a coolant leak to go with it.
