The coolant level sensor is located on the radiator. If you are looking at the engine from the front of the car it will be on the left side. There will some kind of clip holding it in the radiator. Removed the clip and pull the sensor out. You will lose coolant so try to swap it out quick or drain some of the coolant out. Once new sensor is installed, install clip to keep the sensor in place and reconnect the wires to the sensor. Crank the engine and make sure the coolant level is full. This should correct your problem.

The drain should be on the drivers side at the bottom of the radiator, facing the driver. It's a plastic "wing" that unscrews. There should also be a bleeder for exhausting the air from the system when you refill. The bleeder I'm familiar with is a brass screw screwed into the thermostat housing. (where the top hose attaches at the engine)

One good way to find where a coolant leek is coming from - is - when you get home and the car is good and warmed up - "hot".. Park it up on ramps if you have them.. Right after you shut it off - it will build even more pressure in the cooling system.. At this time car is off - open the hood and look (from under the hood and from under the car if you have ramps) for leeks,, listen for the "hissssss".. If the leek is just to small and/or to difficult to find - take it to a shop or oil change place for a compression test of the cooling system to locate the leek..
Hopefully its just a hose leek..
