from what i know, most likely a head gasket. pull it off and replace the gasket and o-rings and might as well replace the valve seals too

might get it pressure tested too

i dont think its good to have coolant in your oil, you should be fine but if you get alot i bet it can dilute the oil and trash the bearings or something bad like that haha shit happens ya know
