Should I change the oil to check for water?
When changing the antifreeze what I do is fill the system, then with the cap off, run the engine until the thermostat opens, then refill the system(too eliminate air). then I'll wait til the thermostat opens a second time, and refill if needed. I increase the throttle to get the thermostat to open quicker.
