After I changed the coolant in mine it took a few runs to work all the air out the system. After a couple of minor top-ups it settled, and didn't need additional fluid after that.
Out of interest how much are you having to add, and how full are you filling it?
One of my previous cars (not a Honda) would never sit on full. I've no idea where the water went. It never went to to low mark, but refused to maintain the full level. I stopped worrying about it eventually

If it's getting into the oil you would see excessive white smoke out of the exhaust. you could have a minor leak which is going nowhere or you could have an issue with wet floor carpets and your internal heater matrix is fecked. Don't top up with water, use coolant and check all rad hoses are relatively fresh looking and not perished.
As Matt says, after a coolant refresh you will need to top up again once all the air get circulated out of the system, this could take a couples of journeys/top-ups to be sure all the air pockets are gone.
