Coolant in pan questions

So I had a bad manifold install and after buttoning up that and trying to find where the oil mess was coming from. I decided to drain the pan and check the rear main. Well the first 2 seconds of fluid was coolant , then crap oil. So it's been awhile since I was a master mechanic (like never) so coolant in oil= bad head gasket, bad maiffold gasket or cracked head/s and or block right? Just want to have a plan of attack. Where do sbc 350 usually blow head gaskets? I know the ma ifold job was crap and that it was the rear rail that was not sealed could that lead coolant to oil? My csi Miami engine skills are low. Any insight before i dig in? Coolant was fresh, back of block and drivers side by filter was very oily and top of bellhousing was cacked with oil. Thanks your insights ,your humble forum member charlie
