So now I don't worry about it, I have a bottle of premixed coolant I keep in the boot, just in case it ever gets really low, but otherwise I don't really worry too much. Probably about every 6 months or so I give it a little top up, I know the level will drop by itself but it makes sure that it hasn't lost any more.
That's pretty much what my car does.
I'm thinking I don't have a leak because I added Barsleaks pellets to no avail (I've had good luck with this product fixing minor leaks on other cars in the past).

I'll keep an eye on it ...
