Air pocket in the system is my the first thing I can think of, sometimes these can be a real bear to get out. The other thing is you have a blown head gasket and the engine is burning the coolant while it is running. Does the coolant level keep dropping? If it does then have a block check performed at a shop, that will tell you for sure.
