What causes coolant to be mixed with oil?

It just started overheating. Oil was full, coolant was full. Put a gallon & half of coolant in it & couldn't make it 5 miles without overheating. Checking the oil, there's coolant in the oil & engine. I've heard head gasket, maybe?

You should perform a compression test to determine the condition of your engine.
