You can get cooling system pressure tested to find leaks.

Check around waterpump weep hole as that is a common leak.

If it gets bad enough on my 2001 cabrio I've had this issue and while I haven't resolved it yet, I can see the leak source is in or around the thermostat housing. It's a place to look.
