Dizzy new water pump/oil in coolant

i just finish paying 350 bucks (labor only) to have a new water pump install in my 2004 vue 3.5l Honda engine. i bought the pump and timing kit comes with belts etc. the mechanic also told me he put 2 gallons of special coolant just for this engine.
after driving for about 1 hour i notice the coolant surge tank has oil. to me it looks like either he put dirty coolant from a oil catch can or oil is leaking into the coolant. i check my oil and its normal. is there a possibility that this comes from the water pump area or this coolant is really special?
