find out where the coolant is coming from. there's a coolant line coming off the bottom of the engine that runs over to an oil cooler fitted inline with the oil pump. that line carries coolant and can leak.
if you really do need a headgasket job and are going to get it done, then wait to do the valve cover gaskets as they'd be much easier to do with the engine out of the car, which it's going to come out for a head gasket job.
headgasket are really rare on that motor, i've only seen it once from another board member.
*** you mention body shop - was it in a wreck? if so definitely check the coolant hoses, radiator, and that lower coolant line to the oil cooler.
