97' F250 coolant problems(head Gasket?)

I recently bought a 97' F250 with a supposed blown head gasket. I drove the truck home, about 2 miles with the reservoir cap loose. It threw some antifreeze out the exhaust when you start it (and white smokes), and has some traces of oil in the antifreeze. Truck is also down on power. Bought the truck cheap enough to fix it. Are the head gaskets the only possibility (going to replace head gaskets) just don't want to over look some thing else that I could've fixed while I got it apart. THANKS FOR THE HELP

Guess I should have said this thing is stock. (I think the boy I bought it from had a programmer on it, before I bought I), Has 200k miles and is not getting water in the oil,

You will also need to check the heads and block for cracks.
