Could be a few things.

Does it leak antifreeze? if so, fix the part that leaks.

If not, you could have coolant mixing with oil inside the engine, which burns it.

check your spark plugs. If they are white, you are probably burning antifreeze - fix immediately.

your exhaust will smell "sweet" as well if you are burning antifreeze.
