A small crack in the head gasket lets the coolant leak into the cylinder head where it's burned. Depending how much is being burned, you might see signs out the exhaust pipe like white smoke.

If burning it you should also smell a sweet smell from the exhaust. If you have a sweet smell inside the car or under the hood you have a leak and it is evaporating off something hot before getting to the ground. Radiator and water neck are good culprits. look for white streaks on the water neck.
