Have the cooling system pressure checked, you might have a loose hose connection that only blows off antifreeze when your car is moving. Antifreeze can also find its way into the crankcase via a failed water pump seal, head gasket, or several less common problems. In that case your oil will be foamy or light brown. Do the pressure test first.
