I am not a mechanic but from experience I guess that the gasket is burnt and it would need to be replace but I dont know the cost.

OK thanks : ), I just don't want to do the head gasket and then it not be the head gasket if you get what I mean

You need to get the coolant leak resolved first. If coolant runs low, overheating would occur and if the head gasket had not been damaged yet, it would sooner or later if the situation persists.

Your turbocharger is gone. The turbo is lubricated directly from the oil feed. When the seals inside the turbo goes oil is being fed directly into the air intake. Do not start engine untill this is fixed. You will empty your sump and lose all lubrication.
