6.0 Ran Hot

I am new to the diesel scene but love my 2007 250 with the 6.0. I bought the truck with 150,000 miles on it and it now has 167,000. Due to not knowing the history of the truck I am not sure if any bullet proofing was done prior to my ownership. With this being said the truck ran hot a few weeks back after a two hour trip, I added some coolant to the truck and then it seemed fine for a few days and didn't notice any thing on the ground when I parked at home. Today I notice coolant on the ground where I park at work when I backed out of the space. When I got home I crawled under the truck and it looks as if there has been a leak for some time due to the staining on the heads where it meets the engine block. I know leaking coolant would be better from a hose but can any one tell me their thoughts on this scenerio and what I need to do to fix it? thanks
