You need to drain the radiator and do a good radiator/engine flush!

The oil and water will mix and make a gooey mess.

If you drive it and heat it up so the thermostat opens, it will mix it further, so a flush would definitely be recommended, if you don't have to drive I wouldn't.

If it hasn't been started a turkey baster might get most of it out of the reservoir.

It will be a big mistake to drive it with the oil in the radiator.
