Audi TT's only take G12 coolant (vw/audi propriatary formula) you can add some distilled water to the water level to prevent the light from coming on, but as you explained you keep adding fluid (of some kind) and the warning like returns. that's a little evident that you have a leak somewhere.
put some paper towels or something under your car when you park it for the evening. when you come out the next day, pull the car away from the spot and look at the paper towels. if they have orange drops, that's your G12 coolant leaking. like McMuff460 said, check all the clamps/hoses for signs of the leak. if you don't find anything i reccomend taking it to a shop for them to check out. Your water pump might be on it's way out.
Don't ever put any other fluid other than G12 coolant and distilled water into your car's coolant system. It will cause some major issues with seals, leaks, and cooling performance.

Get yourself to a junkyard and pack yourself a light lunch while you're at it. Take a leisurely stroll through the junk that closely resembles the one you need parts for. Go to the closest wiring harness to the headlight assembly, take your time and don't go trying to **** it, and unplug it from the bulbs up front. Make a simple and straight forward swap and do take the time to stop and smell the junkers, it's quite relaxing! Then, you should seriously make sure your new wiring harness is properly grounded (!), which I suspect to have been a contribing factor to your problem of overheating the bulb socket. Do take the time to go over the stuff that should be grounded and make it so. Th e job is quite simple and well worth you taking the time to do it yourself.

I suspect you have a bad fan relay or temperature sensor. Here's a link to a page where you can see what these parts look like. The fan relay is usually located in the engine compartment inside a plastic box with a removable lid. It just plugs in and out. The temperature sensor will screw into your engine block and have a cable connected to it. Your owner's manual may give you their exact locations. http://www.diypartscatalog.com/ShopByVehicle.epc?q=2004-PONTIAC-Grand--Prix-V6--31ci--3.8l--F/i--Vin---Belts/hoses/cooling&yearid=2004%40%402004&makeid=67%40%40PONTIAC%40%40B&modelid=13463%40%40GRAND+PRIX&engineid=30226%40%40V6%2D231ci+3%2E8L+F%2FI+Vin+2%40%4030226&catid=2%40%40Belts%2FHoses%2FCooling&subcatid=36@@Sensors%2C+Switches+and+Relays&mode=PA
