By he sounds of it... you need a mechanic ASAP. if you car is using water, it has to go somewhere and that would be your oil pan.
Do not start this car again.
Your mechanic need to reolace the Head Gaskets or needs to to replace the head.
Water runs thru the engine,and sometime the gasket will blow and the the water goes to the lowest point which is the oil pan

Since your check engine light is on, you should try to get it read at Autozone. They will do this for free and it will narrow your search for your problem. It could be a couple of things. It could be as simple as a fuse or clogged air filter to bad spark plugs. Have you did anything to it?
