Nothing. Air bleeds off the cooling system when you open the cap. Just refill it and start worrying why it's so low.

It was low because it was in for a radiator replacement, and the mechanix didn't road test it after he filled the resevior, so when i drove it home poped the hood, noticed it was below the outlet.

Sounds to me like its the A/C condenser drain. The condenser is in the cab under the dash and it creates quite a bit of moisture when the A/C is on and it has to get out through that tube.
