Not a problem. That is why we are here. The weep hole is on the under side of the water pump. It is about 1/4" in diameter. It was put there to indicate when the seal or bearing is bad in the pump. Coolant will leak from it.
As far as the pressure test, there is a pump with a gauge on it that replaces the radiator cap. Many parts stores will lend or rent it to you. WHen the engine is cold, you remove the rad cap, screw on the pump, and pressurize the system. Once it's pressurized, then you can look for leaks that wouldn't happen when the engine cools off. NOTE: also pay attention to the pressure. Does the system maintain the pressure or does it leak down?
As far as the coolant getting into the oil, pull the dipstick to check the oil. Is there a white creayy substance on it? If you remove the oil cap (where you fill the oil) does it have a white creamy substance on it that would indicate oil and water mixing?
CHeck those things out and let me know what you find. If you have other questions, don't be worried about asking. I don't mind at all.
