Default stupid me...coolant ?

so i tried the air silencer mod and in doing to hit the hose just enough so that the line from the coolant reservoir slowly dripped and after and hour of this i finally noticed. the coolant is obviously alot lower in the reservoir tank but is full above the radiator when i went to add some. should i just add some to the reservoir, leave it alone, or fully replace fluid? thanks

Get it to operating temp. Turn it off. Park on level surface. Walk away for an hour or two. Look at the reservoir (on the front between the air box and reservoir, great place ford). You will see a full/cold line. If it is there your good if not add fluid to the line.
