i had that happen when we pulled the radiator for my new engine, but after a day or to, it is fine. try squeezing the coolant hoses to help any air that is stuck escape. the coolant level could be low because there was air in the hoses and it took a while to settle. perfectly normal, just check the level until it is stable. if it is leaking and that is why, then u have a little problem.
what do you mean this happened before? did u change the fluid and then had the problem, of was it a constant occurance to find no coolant in the reserve? this info is really important. Is there any other info that might be helpful?
about your gauge reading, yours sounds perfect, my temp rides the same spot all day, and i am usually in my car ALL DAY. i love it. even w/the a/c on, it never really moves. not to worry, your car was built to be unbelievable, and some things that shouldnt be, are. so enjoy it, and hold your head up high, you have a great car!
