Car had no leaks until about a week ago, where I have had to completely fill coolant up almost everyday. What could be wrong and are additives ok?

The car has had no leaks since I got it, but starting about a week ago, the coolant level indicator comes on and when I check, the reservoir is completely empty except for a little puddle in the bottom.

I have had to fill it back up every day. The temp gauge hasn't gone above half either. What could be wrong or what should I do? Is it ok to put something in such as a stop-leak?

Do you
have the same problem?

There is a leak somewhere and you need to locate the source to find out what is causing it. Stop leaks only works under certain conditions and if it is a hose that is bad, it would not work.
