The new engine is factory new? Or is it rebuilt/used? You usually get coolant in the oil through a blown head gasket/ warped head.

Yeah, I tend
to agree with TT Tony, if you could hear it dripping into the pan, it's probably a cracked water jacket. Better talk to the guys you bought it from.

It seems as though you have a leaking head gasket allowing antifreeze to pass by.

The best option will be to get rid of the oil and replace it with fresh clean oil. Oil mixed with antifreeze will not be able to perform its functions to the fullest. You can consult a mechanic for more details.
