Pull and check all the spark plugs and crank it over a few times. It is possible you will see coolant on one of the plugs, and if you do, cranking with the plugs out will relieve the coolant from the combustion chamber.
Those motors are known for head gasket issues, and since you just bought it, you might be finding out why the guy sold it.
Good luck with it.
