Your welcome. It is an unfortunate problem and usually quite expensive to fix. You will have to weigh the cost with the value of your car. Normally a head gasket goes after a car is over heated or is continuously running very hot. The gaskets dry out, become brittle and then start to leak. There are several places that they can leak and into the oil is the worst place. Sorry to deliver such bad news. Finding oil in your coolant is a bad day.

It is bad but I thank u so much I'm going to get to a mechanic quickly
