Huge uh oh!

So my pulleys were whistling so I didn't drive my car to work today. So I got home and I was tinkering around and I check my antifreeze. It was a little low (no big deal) so I throw some in. I go to put the cap back on and I see a swirl. It was a milk chocolate color (that's the big deal) instantly I call the warranty company that and they said I was covered. Time for a new and know problem, the infamous head gasket. FML. Another two week set back on my project.
