best way to check for bad head gasket

The guy who sold me the car said a mechanic for another buyer (who didn't buy it) said the head gasket was bad because there were 600 ppm hydrocarbons in the coolant expansion tank. Should I do a compression test to confirm this before I start pulling the head? If the compression test shows uniform compression across all cylinders does this mean the gasket is ok?
