Check your oil to make sure your coolant isn't getting into or past gaskets into the oil. Then purge your coolant system you may have an airlock. If that isn't it then replace the thermostat. Before one can more accuratly answer this question, he would have to know if the water your losing is external or internal. Are you seeing any leaks? or are you just noticing the level in the reservior is down? Coolant in oil is an indication of an internal leak, which may or may not have anthing to do with the headgasket job. Since your in traffic, there is a chance the cooling fan is not kicking on, and the coolant may be coming out of the overflow reservior.
