IT's going somewhere. You might be burning it. Without spending any money, drive the car till warm and pull over and pop the hood to see if you can smell or hear, see any coolant. It usually will leak when warm. Check all hoses, radiator, water pump area and heater hoses. Check your trans fluid and oil to see if coolant is mixing with them. You will know based on a foamy mixture. Good Luck!
