oil color

Took truck in for oil cooler check. I check dip stick and saw a greenish color on dip stick, along with low coolant level. Repair shop says color can be normal for diesel oil. I use shell T6 5W- 40

Oh and repair shop said they pressure tested coolant system and no drop in pressure after three hours.
