Do you think coolant loss is not normal? Should i still take her to get looked at? i Just don't want to spend money if i don't have to...especially with the holidays and everything.

VERY little coolant loss is normal, it is a completely sealed system except for the very small amount that can evaporate through the cap in the overflow, which isn't sealed.

Unless you have gone years without ever looking at the overflow, I'd be a little worried about where it went.
