Bad sign - check for coolant leaks under the car and hope there is one!! Check it while it idling and up to hot operating temp so that the water is circulating through the radiator. If it still leaks then you have a leaking head gasket that allows the coolant paths to escape to combustion chamber pistons and thus burn water. Mine did it and can be undetectable with no white smoke from exhaust. Nail this down before the head warps and totals your car.
