It means that you either have a wire loose on the reservor or need to add some coolant to it. It should be located on the right front fender. There is a wire plug on the bottom, if it is loose it will show that you need some coolant. Yeah, a water down symbol would probably indicate low coolant? Anyway, gotta love the days when GM used lights that actually said "coolant low" instead of stupid symbols.

If the cooling fans were working and all the hoses and water pump are not leaking coolant I would suspect the head gasket and/or a cracked head is very possible. You need to have the cooling system pressure checked, this will help determine the cause of the coolant leak. I wouldn't run the engine anymore at this point, if coolant is mixing with the engine oil it would be the end soon.

Why does an arrow go deeper in water than a bullet?

The tip of an arrow is pointed and so it exerts very little pressure on the water surface. Also the shape of the arrow is streamlined so that it has as little Resistance as possible. However, the tip of the regular bullet is blunt and so it exerts more force than the arrow when it comes in contact with the water surface. And the deflection of the bullet in the water will be more than that of the arrow away from the normal due to reflective index.
