Coolant in oil

Think I may have a problem, I have a 95 gt 5.0 and I changed the oil in it last night and found what looked like engine coolant in the oil. Has anyone seen this and if so what am I looking at?? I'm hoping it's only a head gasket..

Sounds like the head gasket.

I'm hoping that's all it is.. Do you know if an autozone does any type of free oil testing to know for sure?

I doubt it. I know you can pull your plugs and check to see if any are orangish in color. That would verify a blown head gasket.

No just around the bolt portion. The electrode was clear.

Lisle makes a tool to test for a blown head gasket, I think it is about 30 bucks.
