I got a red coolant light at start up but after checking the tank I’m not sure if this looks like the correct stuff was used by the previous owner. What do you guys think? What would you do?

It looks contaminated to me. Could be mixed coolants, could be oil mixing in. What color does it look like from the front of the bottle? The OEM stuff is pink or purple.

I would probably do a flush and then put in the proper coolant. Then you know its been done and the right stuff is in there. Do you know when the timing belt/water pump was done last?
