Flush your cooling system out thoroughly with a hose, then you can switch to a good quality HOAT like Zerex G-05. If you don't buy the premixed version, be sure to only use distilled water to dilute the coolant down to the recommended 50:50 ratio.

From whatever is in there. If you don't know what it is, this is by far the easiest and best approach.
