Get a head gasket test kit. Like this one http://www.amazon.com/UVIEW-560000-Combustion-Leak-Tester/dp/B000NPDL76/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1425872593&sr=8-1&keywords=head+gasket+test+kit This will tell you if you have something to worry about or not.

Yup, sounds like a classic head gasket failure. Hope that the heads aren't warped or the block is cracked.
