I need to know if I have a bad head gasket or a bad heater core.. My car keeps overheating and all of my coolant is gone. My drivers side floorboard is damp.

You need to check where the coolant is going. The wet floor board indicates a possible leak with the heater core. As to the head gasket, you need to get the coolant leakage resolved and then monitor. Could be both problems together.

If it was a bad head gasket, would my dipstick oil color be like a chocolaty creamy color? In my case my oil dipstick looks fine it looks normal and shiny tannish/brown like I guess how its supposed to look. (Picture included) I know its kinda hard to tell.
And yes on my drivers side floorboard it is wet!
