Obisouvly a leak somewhere.Would start with upper and lower radiator hoses with vehicle running and at normal operating temp.This will allow the cooling system to build pressure,look for signs of wetness at hoses as well as heater core hoses from water pump to usually the firewall where they go into the passenger compartment to the heater core.

The low coolant sensor is in the resivor where you put the coolant in. Since you drove it such a short distance the thermostat probably did not open to allow the coolant to pass. There is a skid plate underneath the car you can remove to find the source of the leak.

Most likely the coolant level sensor needs to be replaced. The sensor would be located on the coolant reservoir tank. Look for the two wires going to the tank. Unplug it and the coolant light should turn OFF. If the light turn OFF, then the senor needs to be replaced.

This may be the first sign that your water pump is failing. First sign is a leak. Crawl on your back under car if you can see if you can see it coming from front of engine near a pully that would turn your water pump. There is a "weep hole" it may be driping from.

Red light on and off on dash. shaped like radiator with arrow pointing down. what's this mean? don't have an owner's manuel.

It means that either the coolant level is low in the radiator OR sensor which causes that light to come on is bad. Check the coolant level and check for possible coolant leaks. Do you find antifreeze on the driveway or garage floor? If the coolant level is OK and no coolant is found on the floor where the car is parked, the sensor is bad. The coolant level sensor is located in the plastic coolant reservoir tank. It's easy to change and not expensive.
