It's quite common to have to add a bit of coolant the next day or so as the level stabilizes.
Actually the problem is compounded because the air gets introduced and then subsequently trapped down low on the engine because that's where the heater is located.

If you're just filling up an open container then air wouldn't be getting trapped. Unfortunately it's all the twists and turns of the plumbing that causes air to get trapped.
