1998 Cadillac Catera can't tell if it is the engine oil cooler or a headgasket but oil is mixing with coolant and coolant and oil, what would be a sign if it is engine oil cooler

If you have a head gasket problem, you should see dense white smoke coming out of the exhaust pipe if you have antifreeze (ethylene glycol) in the cooling system, especially right after starting the engine.

I own a 98 cadillac catera and

First check for any leakage from your radiator, hoses or overflow tank.

If it were a freeze plug you'd not be able to miss the puddling spillage. Where if it were a head gasket the coolant and fuel / oil would mix and you'd be driving a mobile smoke generator { very noticeable while smoke }

If you can't see the leak take it in for a coolant system pressure test. Which will pinpoint where your vehicle is losing coolant.

My 98 cadillac catera started spitting and pouring oil really bad and i can't find out where it is coming from

If you can't see the oil, wait for the engine to cool, with the key out of the ignition and the battery preferably disconnected for safety, feel for the oil leak. There are a great many places that oil can be coming from, but large leaks tend to start at the pan or the heads.
