    go to the dealership and buy a gallon of toyota super long life coolant, and a new radiator cap. while engine is cold....fill to the full/cold line and replace the cap.

    You are in SoCal you don't need to worry about freezing so just add a bit of water.. make sure you have a least a 50/50 blend of antifreeze to water.. Don't add more water to the system than antifreeze.

    Thats the Cheap Fix... (the main issue is finding out why it is low?)
    The right fix is to add the correct fluid per the dealer. They might due a Free fluid check for you and let you know if you have any leaks!!
