Do you check the coolant level, everyday? Are there any external coolant leaks? Does the radiator fan work? Check thermostat, check for a gasket issue.

It don't look like there is a leak and it looks relly durty in where I poor the fluids in at could it be just dirtying the fans work and how do I tell if it is my head gasket

Try a cylinder compression test. If you dont have external leak, then it may be internal? They can test for combustion gases in the coolant.
