when you pull the head, inspect it real close for cracks between cylinders. Head gasket might be what's needed but head is suspect until you can rule it out. Sometimes the block can crack between cylinders but I would suspect other indicators then.
If all that is needed is the new gasket, remember to re-torque the head bolts after it has been run for a bit.
