Hi well the way to know if you gave blown head gasket is to check your oil and your radiator fluid! if either looks like is mixed with oil and water kind off a sluggish caramel nasty color. Then yes your head gasket is blown.

Pressure test the cooling system...you can find testers at most parts stores and some will rent or borrow them.
