Coolant level drops after water pump change

Hi all, I'm a newbie!

Purchased a lovely Fiat 500L off a friend's mother with just 27000 miles last year. Coolant has been leaking v slowly since I purchased it, and it was finally diagnosed as a slight water pump leak. Water pump was changed and was replaced the following week as it was a faulty part which leaked (much worse than previous leak).

The day after the second replacement I topped up coolant which had gone down, then it went down again, took to garage, no leak found and they said it was just air locks working their way out. I have topped up once since then and it doesn't seem to be dropping as much, but noticed level is a bit less.

Is this quite normal? It's driving me nuts (scuse the pun), think I need to assess it after a few days to see if the level drops significantly.
