Expansion tank.

Check connections for signs of weeping (dry residue on hoses etc)
and replace hose clips with proper jubilee clips if needed.

can you see white smoke from the exhaust, when revved which also smells sweet? check your oil cap for any signs of white gunk, if you see any then could be failed gasket. i lost whole vessel of coolant on my old corsa, was seeing white gunk in the oil. i put some radweld in and stopped loosing coolant, white gunk gone completely but i wasn't comfortable with it due to cracked b-pillar and wasn't worth repairing so that was scrapped.
