Timing belt replaced

I replace the timing belt on my daughters 2007 touring edition 102,000, at a reputalbe shop in Hartford CT. Soon after my daughter came for a visit and I figured I would check under the hood. Alls well except that the anti-freeze level was not showing in the little white tak on the firewall. I had to add about half a gallon of anti-freeze.

I figured that the mechanic just did not fill it right or maybe the engine had to be burped and he did not do it. She has scince had to add a little more anti-freeze but does not see any on the ground and the car is not running hot.

I am not familiar with the correct procedure to replace the anti-freeze. Did the mechanic do something wrong or do I have a cooling leak problem?

Any advice would be helpful.

Does the cooling system have to be opened to change this timing belt? Or is the water pump driven from it, and replaced as a precaution at the same time?
