Further to my cooling / overheating problems i took off the filler cap and noticed that there was some white mush on the underside of it and some water droplets inside the cam cover.....i take it that this could be the head gasket blown...would a compression test be the way to veryify this..???

The M54 isn't known for head gasket problems, even if they've gotten a bit hot.

They're notorious for their weak cooling systems, so I'd investigate there first, especially if it's original.
