Are you loosing coolant slowly? Possible cracked cylinder head or headgasket. ! injector partially restricted so it can't deliver a richer fuel when cold. Have you checked for any codes? When it's last good tune up?

No my car have no problem with the water but i did not take it to a tune yet


Compression check, (hopefully nothing found there), good tune up with plugs, wires, cap and rotor, all the filters, see if that helps. If not you may want to have the injectors professionally cleaned and then keep adding a bottle of Techron to each tank of fuel to keep it clean. To be honest I'm still worried about a blown headgasket or cracked cylinder head, cause the first symptom of either one is a slight miss at initial start that goes away in a short period of time.
