On immediate start up ther is cold steam coming out from the radiator with the cap off. Is this a sign of bad head gasket. The truck has a new radiator and thermostat. It also runs fine but does overheat quickly.

Yes it is. You most likely will be removing the head for inspection

Ports in the rear part of the head gasket start leaking, you need to get another head
