92 Accord: Coolant Reservoir Filling Up

I have been noticing over the past few months that my radiator fluid level has been slowly going down on my 92 accord, and my coolant reservoir which was at its proper level has been increasing...not overflowing but rising. The radiator cap is only 2 years old and I will check it again. but what else could cause that to happen? Thanks

does sound like cap is not working but hoses must be tight so it's pulls on coolant and not air. an air leak will let it flow coolant out but will not suck back in.

I will take another look at the cap.

Also could be a bad head gasket.
