Hi there,

if the coolant is leaking via the head gasket, there is a very good chance that is is or will soon be leaking internally as well, possibly into a combustion chamber, this will eventually lead to a fully blown head gasket, the only way to treat this problem is to have the heads removed crack tested surfaced and replace the head gaskets.
