Default Muddy oil

My cx 9 (2008, 160k miles) started making a clanking noise yesterday, . I puilled over and there was no antifreeze in the reservoir... I called my husband and he came to look at it. We can't see anything leaking ... so not sure what's going on.
When he checked the oil is was milky like. Sigh.

The oil was changed at valvoline a few weeks ago

I need to have it towed to be looked at but just wondering what you think ... scared of worst case (ugh).

I'm guessing a blown head gasket. Sounds like you need a new engine.
