Most likely air in system bleed air from system like this. Remove cap from overflow tank fill with antifreeze to full mark start vehicle and let idle you will notice level in tank start to rise this is normal once thermostat starts to open level in tank will drop add more antifreeze to full mark then put cap back on.
