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.

So you got me thinking,crawled underneath the truck and started looking,there is some residew by the front axle look-up by where the the heater core is an i see 2, 1/4 inch hard lines an a 3/8 rubber one with a clap below the 2 hard lines,sticking out of the fire wall by an inch with nothing in it.What do you think that could be.

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.
