If all the old coolant wasn't removed when you had it flushed, it could be old coolant mixed with the new coolant.

Pics did not come up last time I looked. I see them now. That does not look like oil to me.

Is your car blowing white smoke out the exhaust pipe? If so it's your gasket.

Do you need to keep adding coolant? If so it's your gasket.

I always thought if the gasket was gone coolant would be in your oil - not oil in your coolant.

It's almost looks like some type of radiator sealer is mixed in. Like stop leak or something?

Speaking as someone how has had a HG go while driving 70MPH on the freeway you WILL know when you loose it. If the car is still running then you didnt loose the gasket.

Your motor will run with a blown head gasket, it will just run poorly. Sometimes the only noticeable indication is losing coolant or oil or both. If you severely blow your head gasket(s) then thats a different story...
