Default possible coolant loss

My 2008 has the 2.3 Duratec and last week I noticed that the coolant level in the resevoir tank was about an inch below the minimum fill level. There aren't any external leaks. I bought basic Prestone 50-50 mix and added it, so I guess I'll find out if it's a problem. I was wondering if it was air in the system or it was low from the factory, which wouldn't surprise me since the truck left the factory with unbalanced wheels. Out of all the times I added washer fluid I can't believe I never paid attention to the resevoir tank. I'm super paranoid about my things and I do all my own work, I will not take my truck back to the dealer I bought it from for warranty work.

I wouldn't be worried about that. You need to worry if you notice it consistently disappearing.
