Sounds like air pockets in the cooling system, needs to be purged out by leaving the radiator cap off and run up until the thermostat opens and adding coolant as needed. It may overflow out the radiator until the thermostat opens but that would be air coming threw.

Also have the climate control set to hot.

If you can, park the car facing up hill which will help the air pockets rise.
