My radiator fluid and my transmission fluid looks the same. They both look like chocolate milk. I was told that my coolant is mixing with my transmission fluid, but could this be a blown head gasket?

A bad headgasket is oil in your coolant. What most probably happened, is the transmission coolant lines that are inside the radiator broke and mixed with your coolant. I would advise not to drive it further till you get the radiator replaced and the transmission flush a couple times.
