most likely it's a head gasket leak.
  • have you ever overheated?
  • how do you know it's cream colored if it isn't on the dipstick? is anything on the dipstick, oil?
  • what does the coolant look like?

Ele; Drain oil when cold. Loosen oil plug and hold it in place as you unscrew it. If you don't see antifreeze after the first quart, screw it back in and fill to dipstick level.

Could be a broken pcv hose? Just being optimistic. Although rob [the master of doom] is probably right.
