Yes, do all of those things, have a pressure test done on the cooling system to see if the leaking is internal. It could be an intake manifold gasket as well, I believe the '90s Grand Ams were known for head/intake manifold gasket leaks. Also you might want to check for pinhole leaks at the bottom of the radiator -- had a car once that emptied the coolant reserve EVERY MORNING, later found out a small pinhole leak was allowing it to drip out the bottom of the radiator, pool on a frame rail, and of course blow off while driving so you never saw a puddle.
