Golf GTD with errors

Hello, new user here.

I recently got a Mk GTD, I am verry happy with it even though it has some errors that I hope someone can shed some light on

-There is most likely oil in the coolant, the coolant in the tank is thick yellow ish and oily. The engine oil doesn't show any signs of coolant. Whats th number one culprit on these cars for leaking oil into coolant system? I'm hoping it' s a oil cooler but fearing headgasket/head.

-I belive the dual mass flywheel is on it's way out. When keeping a stady pace or under slight acceleration the car can feel shaky, or sometimes like it is having a misfire.
It has a dsg gearbox.
Does it need to be replaced right away or can it wait a couple of months?

Hi Estens,
The oil can mix with coolant in several location (head gasket, oil cooler, DSG cooler). It also can migrate through fractures in cylinder block. The car must be checked by a mechanic.
