Coolant missing

My coolant seems to disappear. My car is not overheating, and it is not in my oil and nor is it getting burnt from the exhaust so i know the head gasket is not leaking. Where could it be going? Heater core? Im stumped. Would appreciate some help please.

just the one top up, or is it every month? any work done on the cooling system recently?

have you completely ruled out leaking?

I'd check you sensor too. (it should be warning you)

It was the first top up. No work was done to the cooling system recently, but shouldn't the car be overheating if its low? And I've left the car idling for a couple of hours straight and when I went out to it, it was in the drop dead center
