Lightbulb is my headgasket blown

i bought a 08 ltr about a month ago when i tried to check the oil stick and i notice it was like a white cream on the stick... that was my first thought of blown head gasket but the bike start up and run fine i heard no backfire to me it sounds regular... then again yesterday i left my bike jacked up on the side i was checking a oil leak and it rained and next morning i tired to start up nothing and i notice there was creamy liquid in the seat carpement with air filter so i had to bump start the bike it started but then after a while alot of smoke came out of exhaust and my friend told me the air filter sucked in the creamy liquid.... i also check around the head for black residue and check the radiator cap for cream and also a bike mechanic he told me that my head gasket is blown all he did was start my bike and said you hear that rattling that head gasket i was like wtf is he tryna just get money out of me?

sorry for my bad typing

Sounds like a headgasket. but also sounds like you may have bad rings blowing oil into the airbox.
