loosing antifreeze

i have an 06 6.0 and ive been thinking that eather the head gaskets or the egr is bad. Its blowing blue smoke kinda like my 2 stroke motors blow. Untill just the other day, i havent thaught much of it and ive checked my oil and antifreeze periodicly. and every thing seemed to be how it should but then the last time i checked there is NO antifreeze in the degas bottle. the oil has no water in it and i havent noticed any comming out of the exhaust. any ideas on whats going on?
thanks in advance

Elevate the rear od the truck, pull the EGR valve, and see if it is wet in the intake manifold. If it is your EGR cooler is leaking. If not it is likely to be the head gaskets, but it could be a cracked head too.

Got questions about your 6.0?
