I have a coolant in the oil. Every couple days my coolant level drops down, when I check the oil level was up.

Better get this checked and repaired soon. Hopefully it's just the oil cooler, but you could have a more serious issue like a leaking head gasket. If the transmission cooler is leaking, you could have issues with the transmission, so get it looked at soon!
Good Luck

Stop driving it and as Bret said get it checked out ASAP. If you keep driving it with coolant in the crank case it will definitely damage the engine.
