May also just be condensation in your oil. Do a complete oil change if you feel comfortable doing so, after you do the oil change do not start the vehicle, crack you drain bolt again allowing some oil to run out. If the oil starts to clear up and return to its original color then it is just condensation. This has happened to other vehicles that I have owned and is an easy fix, however if this is not the case then unfortunately it is the pricey issue stated above

Hi, This is not a good sign here. this is signaling a really bad issue with one or both of the head gaskets. your coolant is mixing with the oil content and, this can cause major block break down if this isn't corrected ASAP.
Watch your temp while driving this car for long periods of time.
