Radiator was leaking on side of radiator and was going to take it to a shop. While checking coolant and other fluids found that coolant was in my oil. The car has not over-heated. Is there a cheap way of going about the fix? And what would be options of this happening?

The head gasket is bad. There are aftermarket coolant additives to attempt to seal the head gasket, but in my experience even the most expensive that claim to be permanant only work a short time. You will have to get a new head gasket and it is best to do so as soon as you can to avoid further damamge.
