Question about 1998 Saturn SL
If the system is losing coolant to the outside world it should be visible as seepage or drops on the ground under the car.
If these signs are not apparent, an internal loss is possible via a leaking head gasket etc., but this would be show up as coolant in the oil or engine overheating.
If you can't find where the coolant is going, check that the system was properly filled after water pump replacement, with attention to bleeding out air. Air locks can cause a low coolant level after the air settles out.
It is always a good idea to check the system coolant level (when engine is cold) after the first couple of runs after coolant system re-fill.
