You should be able to see the problem. Look for burnt areas of the gasket or a spot where the gasket layers have separated.

Maybe yes and maybe no. If coolant was going into a cylinder the combustion chamber and valves will be much cleaner than the others. Coolant cleans all the carbon off. In a 4.6 Ford engine that has not been overheated a bad head gasket is not a common problem.
