Worth a quick check is to ensure that it is not transmission oil in your coolant. This can occur if you have a defective heat exchanger in your radiator. Check the trans fluid on the dipstick - if it is clear then it is probably head gasket. If it is at all cloudy (emulsified oil) then you have a defective radiator which requires urgent attention to save the transmission.
Good luck
Adrian
