Low windshield fluid & coolant

Happy Monday my bummer fest community members.. I seem to be having an issue ... Topped off my coolant 2 weeks ago.. and also refilled my windshield washer fluid on Friday 12/27 due to message indicating low.. This am both messages are back up.. Weird, I'm wondering I have a leak somewhere? Has any ever experienced this issue and if so can you plzzzzz point me in the right direction.. No warranty

Windshield washer thing... There's a small rubber fitting with a tiny plastic filter on it that fits into the tank. The pump itself gets pushed into this fitting. Over time, it leaks. Fill your tank and watch to see where it leaks (shine a light on the BOTTOM of the pump itself).

Water is fine so long as you live in an area that doesn't freeze. You are just trying to determine the source of the leak; most of what you add will probably leak out anyway.
