Hi..there.. Its not unknown for these cars to do that after shut down especially so after being hard driven for it perfectly normal in some respect when the hot coolant sits stationary at the temp sensor housing..on the other hand you should always inspect your coolant level..thats one of the key must only do this when the engines cold and see what the coolant level is like and top up if required..if there is a continual loss of coolant then the coolant system must be checked for leaks asap..also montior the temperarure guage at certain points whislt driving as this will indicate if or wether the temp switch is failing or the thermostat isnt operating correctly...
