You mean anti-freeze. If it was the same color, you should be OK, it's not good to mix. Kind of antifreeze is more important than brand. Since you have to add frequently, you have a leak. Either it's leaking enough you can see it on the ground, or it's evaporating before. You also could be burning it.

check your oil. if it's milky looking, you have a problem, like a head gasket gone bad.
