Intake gasket or head gasket issue?. Also, if the head bolts were not sealed with liquid sealant or telfon tape etc coolant will end up in the valve covers. Been there.

Be careful. Coolant will destroy the lubrication properties of engine oil. Check the oil level and if it goes up at all start tearing down the engine untill the coolant issue is fixed. My stock intake manifold ( lower) gasket failed and wiped out bearings quicky. Simultaneously 1 broke number 1 and 3 piston crowns. In my case I stopped driving the car and tore it down; damge was limited to the pistons and bearings.
