If the gauges read normal and the fans are working properly and the vehicle dosen't overheat. I would suggest that it's the normal operation of the vehicle.
The overflow bottle is there because when the vehicle get's hot it draws in the extra coolant from the overflow. When the engine cools down it will push the extra coolant back into the overflow, that's what the radiator cap is for, it's not just a cover for the radiator. At a certian pressure the radiator cap will release the coolant to the overflow bottle. Otherwise the super heated coolant would have nowhere to expand to and blow apart hoses and such.
One other thing to check is if the coolant is a proper mix of antifreeze and water. You can buy a coolant check tool from any auto store, they don't cost too much.
Tip: Use distilled water instead of tap water (or use pre-mixed antifreeze). In some cars regular tap water will speed up corrosion in the cooling system.
