Yes I would change the thermostat ASAP. If you overheat your engine you'll really have issues and major expense. The coolant could just be going to the overflow reservoir. Then when the engine cools it draws it back to radiator. Your thermostat is sticking that's why it is acting erratically.
Oh yes and the thermostat is in the housing that connects to the upper radiator hose. You'll need socket set, combination wrenches, scraper and some RTV gasket sealer.
Depending on which way the flow of your radiator is some are top flow some are bottom thermostat is usually located on the opposite side of the water pump. another thing to check if you have water leaks are your cooling hoses and the heating systen radiator located under the dash board
