Coolant/radiator issue

Hey guys. I have a 2001 wrx I bled the system yesterday and replace the coolant. Driving today for a few minutes and saw the thermostat rise up slowly.
It kept going up but after a little time idling went back down to normal...
Not quite sure why. I've checked the coolant hole (Sorry not technical) it seemed empty
When filling I made sure to burp the hoses. Until full. I have since topped up again. And am waiting for it to cool down again. I can't see any leaks and am just concerned that all this coolant is going somewhere it shouldn't be

If anyone has any ideas

Please help!!

Kind regards

Re: Coolant/radiator issue

how many litres of water do you think you have put in ?
can you hear and sloshing sounds coming from the heater matrix in the car ?
did you bleed the system ?
