Will not know until it is taken apart unless you have one of those snake cameras that can look inside the cylinder.

As stated above a bore scope can help, but this a Taurus and blown head gaskets are very common on these vehicles.

Could be either a cracked head, cracked block (less likely) or blown head gasket. Some vehicles with a blown intake manifold gasket can put coolant into a cylinder and I am not certain if this is a possibility in your case.
