Antifreeze leaking from cylinder head gasket

It appears that I have antifreeze leaking from my cylinder head gasket. Has anyone else had this issue? Is there any kind of additive you can add to the water resevoir that will help seal a leaking gasket?

There are products, but then you run the risk of clogging up the radiator.....and still not getting the gasket to seal up.

The way I see it if your leaking from the head gasket the only way to fix that is replace the gasket. Im thinking if it gets worse you could have coolent leaking into the cylinders, if that happens when the bike is running you could have some major problems. Im not an expert by any means but im wondering if the heads could be warped a little bit, was the bike overheated? I have never taken the heads off on a bike so i dont know how its designed.

bike has not been overheated. In good condition. Odd that this situation does not present itself all the time.
