Depends on the colour of coolant you have in the system already for topping you should buy coolant thats ideally the same colour within the expansion tank as you never mix the two...once you know what colour it is then you simply buy the coolant type/colour accordingly...any local motor factor will sell small bootles for topping up but it should be a 50/50 mix of coolant and water..not neat...having said that depending on how much your requiring to top up with? you could add a little distilled water to bring the level up...
