The temperature also seems to be running higher than it was previously.
Should I be very concerned about this? Are they signs that something is very amiss with the car?
I realise to many of you that this will seem a very silly question, but please bear in mind that I am a totally novice when it comes to cars and all things mechanical so I am appealing to those of you who know much more about such things than me.
Any advice or help would be welcome.

I won't be at the meeting tonight as both myself and my other half have colds which I don't want to inflict on any of you, but we should be there next fortnight (with or without my car depending on how things have developed).
I am, not for the first time, worrying that taking on such an old vehicle with little to no knowledge may have been a foolish thing to do...
I am a bit worried about my car (a 1959 Hillman Minx as some of you may know) it seems to be losing water recently...not that I can see evidence of it under the car or anything, but I have had to put in over 1.5 litres to top the radiator up since about a month ago (bearing in mind I only drive it once or twice a week at the most on short trips of under five miles). I have been told that this isn't something that should normally be necessary if all is running as it should be, hence my concern.
