Coolant Problem

Hello everyone! My name is Dwayne and I just purchased an 03 330i for my wife. My problem is the car seems to consume water. The light for low coolant has shown up several times inspite of me topping it off with 50/50. I just drove the car 725 miles after buying it and it caused me to stop a couple of times out of concern. But the temp guage never moved. I have topped it off a couple of times cold, and it just seems to dissapear. What is the proper procedure to top off, and should it be cold, warm, or what?
I am afraid that something is wrong. Can the radiator cap effect this!
Many thanks!!!!

When you say you are topping it off are you filling the radiator completely to the cap?
