I've worked on enough boilers (hydronic & steam) to recognize dissolved air in water from heat & pressure will make it look milky. The slight orange hue is probably from rusting metal shavings left over from manufacturing or exposed steel surfaces within the cooling system.

I'm dying to find out what it really is.
cant see the orange being rust, as the only piece in the cooling system that is steal is the water pump shaft
