need advice/member of droped valve seat

2003 se focus. replaced piston number 3, rod and rings. New head and gaskets, cleaned out egr and intake. Car has been running about 2 weeks. Started having problems starting. It will start out slow then catch up and start and run fine. 3 days ago it died at stop sign. Got it started and home. Noticed coolant was low. Added some, then check compression. Pulled valve cover off and discovered i have coolant in the oil. Used haynes manual to tear down and rebuild. any ideas
