Meaning? Are you asking 'where to add coolant'? or 'my coolant level is dropping, where is it going'?

If it's the former, I'd stay away from the engine bay and take it to a garage for regular servicing, if it's the latter there's only 2 places it can go, onto the floor from a leak, our out the exhaust pipe owing to (probably) a head gasket problem.

All the best
