dont know anything about the PO. Except he sprayed the truck, with house paint -_-.

When I put the antifreeze in, I just opened the drain plug
let the radiator drain out. started the truck for a minute Then shut it off.

The PO was running Straight Water.

Also I bought The Auto zone brand Antifreeze. the cheapest one... $11

the truck also doesn't lose any coolant, So maybe it's just the antifreeze or something boiling ?
Will it harm the truck if I drive it this way.

Oh boy... Keep checking and if it doesn't come back maybe you're okay. I think you have a busted head gasket though. PITA...

I sure hope not! It doesn't over heat at all, no oils in the coolant, no coolant in the oil.
not losing coolant anywhere, But if it is a blown head/Headgasket I'm going to this

Pre-mixed coolant is a waste of money. Some people run as much as a 70/30 mix with no ill effects. The system likely was not fully purged of air and/or there were contaminants in the coolant. Observe the coolant in the top of the radiator with the cap off while the engine is running. See any bubbles? Bubbles are a pretty good indicator of a blown head gasket.

I had a blown head gasket in a 1986 Dodge Ramcharger once. I didnt do anything about it for a while because I bought the car for $450 and didnt care. It started as just the white milky stuff in the coolant and nothing bad in the oil. 1000 miles later I was putting in a 1/2 quart of oil every time I filled up on gas. 2000 miles later I had 6 bent up pushrods and 2 that were pushed straight through the rocker arms. I got much better gas milage running it as a 4 cylinder though! I got 17 mpg when I towed a car from NC to MD. Eventually it got so bad my radiator emptied itself through my exhaust in 20 minutes of driving so I'd have to stop and fill it up a lot to get home. Anyway, I eventually pulled the heads and thats when I discovered the push rod and rocker problem. I also had two 1/2 inch gaps in one of my head gaskets. The Dodge 318 is a tough engine, but I digress...

I think it's a blown gasket. Have fun!

More than likely you did not burp all the air out before you started it.
With that, the pump will agitate a lot of the trapped air into foaming the coolant.

Try parking the rig nose up a slight angle to aid the air to escape when you refill the system. Another thing to check is the burp hole in the thermostat housing, they usually are rusted shut when they're this old.

Sailor Jerry is a good foam buster too
