Default Possible coolant problem

Hi! I'm new on here and just wondered if there were any experienced persons who could answer my queries...

Basically I changed a coolant hose three days ago and decided to flush the system and replace with new coolant, needed doing. Three days later and I'm still topping up with coolant, I've not put in 10L yet but not sure i got 10L out any way... Is it possible that there is a bit of air working its way out? Can't see any leaks anywhere. By the way the bleed screw on the top of the water pump is corroded tight.

It's a 2003 2.0d x type sport.

Thanks 😊🍻

Default Quick update

looked at the dip stick and no white milky stuff tastes of oil too, no milky stuff on oil filler cap at all but there is a hint of anti freeze when I tasted it... No pressure in coolant system at all...

Oil cooler breach??
