Valve cover, AKA (camshaft cover is not a big deal to get at. Just remove the cover (six bolts I believe) clean up the head surface and the gasket channel on the cover. Important--new gasket has to be properly aligned and you should use the recommended sealant. A good second choice for sealant is Permatex RTV Blue. After you get the cover back on, clean off the block in the area you suspect the head gasket is leaking (big job $$$$ to replace that part), drive it for a while and see what happens. Hopefully, what you were looking at was seepage from the camshaft cover.
