No it does not mean that your engine is gone. It means that water or coolant is getting into the engine oil. This can come from multiple different locations. The most likely causes are head gaskets, intake gaskets, oil coolers, or cracked engines. Engine problems are a possibility, but I hate to jump to a worst case scenario without proper testing.
