The system we have over here is different. For manual transmission, the radiator would be as you have in your vehicle but for auto transmission, the radiator spans the entire front and the fans works together.
If the radiator is sucking in the coolant from the recovery tank, that could indicate 2 things.
1. There was air in system and and has since self bled. You would need to monitor and see if the overheating occurs again.
2. There is a leak somewhere and it is using up coolant.
Top up the coolant and monitor the situation for another one or 2 times and aleways note the recovery tank level.
When you performed bleeding of the cooling system, did you turn the heater on?
