Don't be to hasty, it could be as simple as a split in the line from your radiator to the recovery tank.

It's a long shot but worth investigating.
A leaking line could explain the loss of coolant and when you refilled everything that line would be full of air, as the coolant expands that air bubbles into the recovery tank until the line is once again full of coolant.

I'm not saying that this is your problem but it's worth checking before pulling the heads.
