Coolant System Leak

Engine

Vehicle Information: Year: 1999;

A couple of weeks ago the coolant warning light began flashing at a cold startup. If I stopped the engine after a few seconds and restarted the light did not come on. I checked the coolant level. It was a little above the "MIN" mark. I added a little bit of water so that the level was just under the "MAX" mark, and the light has not come on again. Since I added the water I have been checking the coolant level frequently and it does appears to be going down. I assume I may have a small leak in the coolant system. I plan on bringing it in to the dealer to have it checked. Is there anything else that could cause the light to come on? Also, is this a chronic problem with Boxters?
