I wouldn't run it much with that oil in it.
With that bright green antifreeze, let it sit overnite
or two, and check the drain plug again,
strong light and just loosen it enough to barely leak,
watch carefully for even a single drip of bright green.
one drip is all you need to see..........
If you see one, hopefully, it will just be the headgasket.
Do a leakdown test
with no thermostat, it will be easy to see/hear bubbles
(your compression tester hose will work with the shrader
TDC on each piston in turn, pressure it and look for bubbles.
strong pencil light in each plug hole should let you see a 'clean'
You can also usually smell a antifreeze leak into the combustion chamber when it's running.
(take that bucket of oil outside, clear your head a few minutes, then stick your face in the bucket...smell antifreeze?)
hopefully, it's just a headgasket, other possibilities are a head/block crack
between a water passage and a oil drainback hole.
good luck.....whatever it is, it is fixable
