What is a feel mark? Its normal for the level to fluctuate on mine depending on whether its a lot cooler then when I checked it last, but when the temp goes back up so does the fluid. If you overfilled it any the system may have bled off the excess.
A problem like this could range anywhere from a leaking hose to a bad radiator cap to a cracked head or bad head gasket. More information would be necassary to help you any more. Check it every day or so, its at the full line now where its supposed to be, just moniter for changes.

In the meantime to try to run down the "check list". Check for any leaks of any kind coming from any coolant lines, including the ones against the firewall for the heater core.

Check to see if your overflow tube is wet, this would indicate that you could be losing coolant there

Have your radiator cap tested or just spend the $5 and buy a new one.

Check you oil to see if any water/coolant is mixing with it. This will be evident by the oil appearing to be a "milkshake".

Check for excess white smoke out of the tailpipe, sniff it to see if you can smell coolant in it.
Sure it'll suck, but it'll make you a man
