head gasket ?

I have noticed a leak , of what it seems a headgasket probelm. the car is diesel - Lexus IS 220d, , year 2007

Can some one a confirm if I need the head gasket replaced ? I can not notice any oil in the coolant reservoir, or any milky residue in the oil cap.

But in case this is the head gasket I wouldnt be prepared to spend all that money in a car this old, so what about those leak sealers , are they really effective, and for how long ?

I would appreciate your help

I would fix it right. If it is as bad as you describe. The band aid sealers will not fix it.
