Headgasket or cracked heads?

I ran my car just a few days ago, and after letting it warm up, I moved it forward and there were puddles of anti-freeze where my mufflers are.

I had this once last fall just before putting it away, and tried to do two cooling system pressure checks and both times they held for about 10 minutes (until they popped out and anti-freeze when everywhere ).

The car ran hot a couple times last year do to electric fan quiting. It never ran warm on the highway after that, but did at low speeds.

So, how can I tell if it is a headgasket or head other than taking it apart? No anti-freeze in the oil, yet......

I rather not pull both heads as the bbc heads are heavy and am sure a pita when still in the car.

thanks in advance
