Coolant in Oil, and Oil In coolant

I was driving home from work the other day and my temp gauge wents nuts, over heating bigtime, so i pulled over real quick, popped the hood and checked the coolant.......bone dry, filled her up and made it home, I went out to check on it later in the evening and she was bone dry again just siiting there, i filled her up again and noticed after i filled it up that there was wat looked like oil in the resovoir, i said ohh sh*t, well checked the oil it looked a little lighter then normal almost greyish, I let it sit for a while went checked to see if it had sucked down that water, it hadnt but there was oil in it, and checked the dipstick, it was about 4" higher the it should be.
I'm thinking either the oil cooler or an head gasket, It doesnt feel like i had lost any power so I dont think its a cracked block, or possibly and injector cup, how can you test the oil cooler to see if it bad?

any help appreciated guys

did you change the oil during the repair , if not do so , as far as oil still being in the colant , it may take some time to get that out and quite a bit of flushing

I drained and changed it right before I did the repair, I'll change it again and hopefully get rid of it

Well, now I changed the oil and drove it around for a while, and its still sucking coolant down, and my oil is getting milky
I know that the milkyness in the oil may take a while to get all out, but its still sucking down coolant
