Complete the pressure test; air only enters a cooling system by two mechanisms:

a) Normal cooling system operating pressure forces coolant out through a failure point and lost coolant is displaced by air;

b) Cylinder pressure forces gases into the cooling system via a casting crack or head gasket breach (gasket failure or casting warpage).

If no external coolant leaks are present and no coolant leaks to crankcase (lower intake) are present, the engine most likely needs the heads pulled for further inspection.
