If the coolant is depleting, you could have a head gasket problem, especially if the smoke is white.
The white gunk is an indication of presence of coolant in the engine oil. Get a leak down test performed.

Thanks for that, car booked in on Friday, shalt be driving it before then, is it an expensive cost to get head gasket replaced and all the other checks that go with my problem?

The head gasket job is not too cheap, should be around the 1 k region. The tests and checks should be a 1 - 2 hour job depending what tests you are conducting.
