Car cranks but wont start just sputters and pops kinda like it backfires. There appears to be antifreeze and water on top one of the pistons and the cylinder is soaked. Could my car not be starting due to a cracked head or is it something else?

Seems like you have a bad head gasket or even cracked head causing the non starting. Thee engine must have overheated badly previously if it is a bad head gasket.
