'88 420 SEL head gasket symptoms

Query: What would be the telltale signs that a head gasket is about to blow on this engine?

Notes: car has 167K, otherwise performs fine.

Upon startup, has a little grey (not black) smoke , which goes away after warm-up.

Sometimes there are some droplets of water (not antifreeze) from the tailpipe.

Any thoughts? Thanks.
