New Owner - Engine Component ID?

Hi guys,
Just looking for some help. I purchased a 2nd hand 156 yesterday and have been checking my fluid levels to day. One of the levels is really low and I'm not quiet sure what it is..... The tank is located at the top left of the engine bay and has a green lid.
Can anyone identify this for me? I think its coolant but I'm not too sure.

Thanks in advance.

Neil

If the coolant is visible in the expansion chamber it cant be very low. dont top it to the very top m8, half way or even a bit lower is ok.

Should have the min/max levels marked on the front part ... remember this is coolant or a 50/50 mix ... don't just stick plain water in.
