Default coolant problem

my 1998 dodge 1500, (which i bought cheap beacuse of a few problems) seems to be having a coolant problem. When i first bought it the reservoir bottle was almost empty, but the truck was running fine in the 98 degree heat. i filled the bottle, and noticed a few days later it was down about an inch. I just filled it to the brim today, and checked it later and its down about 3 inches from the top. I smell coolant around the motor but not inside the car. Doesnt appear to be any oil in coolant or vice versa.
