It's leaking from somewhere. Hose, radiator, water pump, etc. Fill it up and go for a drive for at least 20mins to warm the engine up and pull over and pop the hood. See and smell where it is leaking from. Get under the truck too.

It might not be leaking at all since you just had some work done on it. There might have been air still in the system when they handed it back to you as done. Every time I do work on the system, I make sure the coolant bottle is completely filled when I finish because I know that when the engine cools, the vacuum will start pulling coolant back into the radiator/block.
