There is a sensor in the coolant overflow tank and when the antifreeze gets below that line the warning light comes on. When the coolant level is falling below that line it means the coolant is going somewhere and not staying in the system. Leaking radiator, water pump, hoses, heater core, bad gasket all come to mind. Generally you will see a green or orange stain on the ground where the car is most often parked, that will lead you to where the leak is. But it may only leak after it is warmed up and running so you would have to examine under the hood to find a stain there.

That is your low coolant level light. Add antifreeze/water mixture to the overflow resevoir
