No, check the cap.  It should hold 1.2 to 1.35 bar.

The official way is with tool VW1274 with adapter VW1274/1.  It's basically
a small hand pump with a dial on the side.  The filler cap contains a 
safety valve arrangement, designed to vent coolant in the event of the
system pressure exceeding a safe level.  If this fails, e.g., starts opening
at 0.8 bar, you'll get the symptoms you describe.
