my water pump is filled at the max level and within two months it is approaching the min mark.

Should I been concerned that I have to fill it up every two and a half to 3 months?

This is not good, you have a leak. The coolant level when at the MAX,should stay at the MAX and never need topping-up.

Something as small as a pin prick that only expels coolant when the engine is hot would give those sort of symptoms.
