Pressure test your cooling system with the spark plugs removed if the system won't hold pressure it is very likely that it blew the head gasket, crank engine over and see if coolant blows out of the spark plug holes, if it does then you will have to remove the head have them checked and milled if cracked, replaced. And then change your oil again as you will have coolant in it again.
