A small head gasket leak won't produce many of the symptoms that you describe.

You don't currently know if there is coolant in the oil............unless you've had a oil analysis performed. This would be the definitive test for presence of glycol or not.

Unless you have a leak in the cooling system, it's likely that your loss of coolant is via the head gasket.
