Steam going out the exhaust, is antifreeze in the oil?

Could just be air bound..

Is it boiling over or is the red light coming on after 5 minutes running?

If I top off the antifreeze and leave cap off and start it after a few secs it will start bubbling then just sitting there the fan will kick on but if I go drive it for a few mins the red light comes on
