Customer Question

I have a(###) ###-####BMW and yesterday the oil light came on then the low pressure oil light then the Engine warning all with in seconds, white smoke from the exhaust for a short time but that cleared, so my concern could it a head gasket? or just an oil leak? I topped up with 1 ltr oil and then all lights went off for a few miles then they everything came back on again. At present the car is parked in a small pool of oil
