Exclamation car trouble

lately, when i turn on my car, white smoke comes out of the exhaust pipe. it has a coolant smell, and at the beggining it seems to misfire a bit. after it gets warm, it stops and doesnt do it again unless it cools down. is it the head gasket that busted? if so, i know i prob shouldnt drive it much, but its the only car i have, so i need to use it. how long can i drive it before it gets worse? im so mad at myself, i saw coolant on th floor and didnt check it right then and there, so it overheated on me. saw the red light turn on so i pulled over and turned it off right away and let it cool off. got home, added coolant and then next day it started smoking. thanks
