2005 C230K water in oil HELP

I the oil I'm my 05 c230k is pretty milky, and theres oil in my coolant resivor, the car has 124 thousand miles on it, and it runs and drives great. I just bought it so, I dont know the service history. Any ideas on what I should do? I hear it can be seals behind the timing cover? Or the oil cooler gasket? Thanks

The car is a manual transmission? And I'm pretty sure it's not transmission fluid. It looks pretty oily inside the coolant resivor.

Than all you post makes sense, you have blown a head gasket. I wouldn't drive the car much more else you loose the engine.

I'm not getting any other signs of it being a head gasket, no smoke, bubbling in the coolant resivor, and the car runs great. ???
