Oil In Coolant

Please help! I am new to the 6.0 world. I purchased a truck for my self and noticed the truck was a dog. So I did all the repairs that this sight suggested. I replaced head gaskets (OEM Gaskets) ARP STUDS ,ERG delete, 8 Injectors ,OIL COOLER (OEM Cooler) complete exhaust . New IPR Valve , Updated the Fuel Pressure regulator. I started the truck yesterday and let it run for a hour and found oil in the coolant bottle. The bottle is brand new. I dont know where to begin.
Is it residue from doing the JOb?
Did i mess something up when installing the new cooler?
Would a head gasket do this? ( I would think I would have coolant in the oil also)
. Looking for some advice where to begin to start diagnosing this. This was heart breaker after doing all this work.

Thanks for the advise.
