It's not the head gasket. Check the hose that connects your EGR cooler or delete to the oil cooler port.

What he said.

Head gaskets SELDOM leak externally.

If that hose is orange, it's the OE hose and it's definitely leaking.

The updated hose is blue.

It can be changed without a lot of grief.

Just get up on top of the engine and look down in the valley to the left (passenger side) of the turbo and you'll see either a short blue or orange hose.
