Check the dipstick, is the oil emulsified?

around the filler cap on the radiator?

Head gasket.

Worst case secenario - cracked head / cylinder

next and most probable - head gasket gone

Best case - a water leak spraying on to the engine and water collecting in the plug voids - just dry out before removing plugs so no water gets in cylinder.
