Oil in Coolant system

I recently herd a ticking noise in the engine so I decided to look into it. Checked oil and nothing registers on the dip stick. Looked in the radiator and seen oil. Could a bad head gasket cause this or is it the block or bad heads?

Sounds like some sort of gasket problem.

It has a turbo on it with a 7lb wastegate spring. The heads aren’t studded either as I can see the lower head bolts. When I looked in the radiator I could see the oil and when I removed some it looked to have a fiber like material in it. Assuming that is remains from the gasket.

Hopefully headgasket. If not could be a cravked block, bad turbo. Oil has much higher pressure than your coolant.
