If you don't have a true 50/50 mix of water and antifreeze you could be boiling off the water, or you head gasket is blown. •Coolant leaking externally from bellow the exhaust manifold. •White smoke from the exhaust pipe. •Overheating engine. •Bubbles in the radiator or coolant overflow tank. •White milky oil. •Significant loss of coolant with no visible leaks

Be aware the thermostat location is under the car toward the rear ... if you have a leak there it is very hard to spot. Continue checking for contamination . Also be aware that GM had a huge recall on your car about 10 years ago when the Delco anti-freeze dissolved head gaskets to the point of leaking into the oil ... yours may be a late bloomer
