I suggest a search on the forums and a Google for cooling system bleeding.

Is there any oil in the coolant or sign of water on the bottom of the oil stick?

1st check all hoses and radiator for any leaks you will spot these by seeing whiteish crystals (powdery) residue which is coolant.

It may also be your thermostat

As for the headgasket= normally mayo looking gunk in the coolant system and on the oil dipstick, lack of power, white smoke from exhaust, if you can do a compression test on each cylinder this will let you know 9/10
