You need a coolant pressure tester.

You can usually borrow one from your auto parts store near you.

It pressurizes your system to show you leaks that you normally cant see while the engine is running.

Check your engine oil, it could be leaking it the oil.

Check your antifreeze level to make sure it is at the correct level.

Also check to make sure your coolent level sensoe is properly connected.

If both of those are ok, it may be you need to replace the coolant level sensor.

How can the car run with a bad water pump?

replace before you lose all your coolant. Also if let go too long the head gasket could start leaking or the head can warp at extreme heat levels.

Coolant light comes on and level is low but don't show any signs of leaks.

check the oil and see if it looks milky from a bad head gasket or cracked head

Coolant leak throuhg engine head?

The diagnosis is correct, either the head gasket is blown or the head is cracked or both, but in any case the head will have to be planed/machined to insure it is flat, otherwise the new head gasket will leak.
