If you got a blown head gasket then you will have murky oil
( anti freeze mixed with oil ) so dump the oil and see what it
looks like , a compression test would be next in line keep
us posted and best of luck

In addition to what Moe said your cooling system can become pressurized as well. Look at the overflow tank with the engine running to see if there are an abnormal amount of bubbles coming up.

No, head gaskets have not been a regular problem.
