Post Coolant pouring into cylinder and oil pan

Ever since I bought my car, it was slowly leaking coolant and blowing blue smoke from the tailpipe when I first start off. Just recently, I had a fuel pump failure and replaced the pump after about 40Km driving to the nearest stop. After my fuel pump was replaced, after only 20Km my car started blowing steam out the tailpipe. It very quickly overheated and I barely got it to a service station where they told me that water was pouring out of my #2 cylinder.

I had my car towed to my house and took the cylinder head off. #1 cylinder has white powder all over and the combustion chamber has no damage but the carbon has been almost completely burned off. The other cylinders are black with a large amount of carbon buildup. The gasket is badly worn around the cylinders but show no visible signs of leakage. The surfaces between the head and block look ok and the internal passages on the head look fine from what I can tell.

What I would like to know is what is wrong with my engine? Is it just the head gasket thats causing these problems or could it be something else? Why does my head gasket look fine and not torn anywhere but on the rim of a few cylinders?

Its a 1989 Hyundai excel 4 banger engine. (Parts hauler for my street/strip car) I took my cylinder head to my usual machine shop and they said its probably a blown head gasket and also pointed out that my #2 AND #3 cylinder intake jet valves are broken. (These valves assist in precombustion)

Is there any way to tell if the block is causing the oil/coolant contamination? How unlikely is it for a block to do that? The cylinder bores are in ok shape with no noticable cracks or scratches.

EDIT: They also said the lack of carbon on my #1 is from steam burning it off.
