Bad Leak....maybe coolant?

Hey everyone,

I noticed tonight that after having the truck run for about 15 mins, i saw a bad leak. It looks like it's coming from my heads, the top of my heads are wet as well. It looks like water but has the texture of oil and has no smell. Now I had a piece of debris from the road shoot up and put a nice size hole in my muffler, a buddy of mine helped me cut it out on tuesday and right now it is 90'd and dumps out underneath my rear pass. door. My intentions was to take it to an exhaust guy by my house and continue the exhaust to behind the rear wheel like it's supposed to. I honestly think that i might have a cracked head gasket and i really hope that what i did to my exhaust didn't cause this issue. Also FYI it's an 07 F350 with 109,000 and no tuner. Any thing you guys got i would greatly appreciate it.

If it is coolant it should have a sweet smell to it. If it is coolant, it may have leaked down from the EGR cooler on top of the engine if it is cracked.
