I checked the levels yesterday and they where okay. And as far as blown head gasket someone told me its not that going on.

Your buring either coolant or oil i would say. Keep an eye on the levels. You may have a piston ring issue letting the motor burn more oil than normal

Allot of the answers could be correct but.......if this hapoens in an area that is cool in the morning, you might be burning off condensation, if this is constant or continuous, could be a blown head gasket.
