oil water mix help ahh

I had very slight oil contamination in my plastic coolant reservoir and bubbles in the metal top coolant tank so i decided to change the head gaskets. Ive taken one of the heads off and the gasket looks ok, but in one of the bolt holes there is a emulsified yellow mix of oil and water ? Has anyone got any ideas on how this mix is going on ? Does the water or oil get through the bolt threads? Any help much appreciated as i am a scooby newby. Thanks Stuart.
