My 2001 Buick Century low coolant light keeps turning on and off! I checked my oil and it looks like mud?

You didn't answer the question about coolant in the oil but I'm assuming you do. With that engine you likely have a bad intake manifold gasket, very common. DO NOT drive it or even start it up in that condition.
