Blown engine and or cylinder head??

Hi Guys,
Completly new to the Alfa owning experience, had my spider a matter of days and there was a lot of smoke and now the coolant header tank seems to literally feed the engine oil sump!!!! Taken out a couple of the plugs and you can phisically see the liquid in the pots? It appears No 1 cylinder to be the worst. The car has done 103 k with a very good previous history. Worth renewing the head or locating a low mileage replacement long engine complete? What do you reckon.

New cylinder head gasket.

In the meantime, drain the coolant (take it all off) and also the oil, if it has coolant in it).
