Suggested Solution

It is a pressurised cooling system so if you remove cap when hot it will tend to fill up . Check to see if coolant fan cuts in .If still suspect head gasket , carry out a block test .If losing water and cant see where from , get a pressure test of cooling system .Could also test thermostat is not sticking .
