Possible Leak

Evening everyone. My car has been giving me some error messages. First it said that oil was low, so I put a qt of oil in there. Then it said coolant is low, I also put some coolant in the vehicle. Then not even a week goes by and I get the same error messages again. Is it possible that my car might be leaking? I have not noticed any leaks from my driveway, so what could the problem possibly be? Any help on this issue is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Blown head gasket comes to mind. What are the details of the car?

Yes, you have a extended warranty.

u going to have to change the plugs when u change the turbo. whatever side turbo is leaking oil the oil leaks in the engine and messes up the plugs and coils. u going to get error codes if u dont change the plugs. its a big job and the extended warranty doesnt cover full labor rate.
