Have you filled it when it was cold ?
Fill it start it up and see if coolant is flowing around in coolant tank after it warms up. If not could be a water pump issue.
Hard to figure by your write up.

If you leave the cap loose and no problems under low load and heat, you probably have a HG issue. You need to do a pressure test to confirm. Coolant and the hot hoses do expand when warm. Opening the cap will result in the hoses relaxing to normal size, raising the level in the degas bottle. It isn't always easy to see fluid movement through the degas.
