Need more info. When did it happen? Were you were driving? Was it over heated. if there is coolant in oil that is not good. Very well could be head gasket. I would pull plugs and check for coolant in cylinders. If there is than your looking at head gasket. If not try cranking the engine with the sparkplugs out. If it still has a hard time cranking could be a shorted starter. Have seen this a lot with starters that have had oil leaking on them.
