Head gaskets do not blow. If you replace them be sure the same thickness is putted back. The shims as they are called do a fine tune on the compression which is very important on the self combustion ignition timing.

If there is a lot of dirt on the head, just check if all head screws are tightened, the LSN needle house is tightened and if there is a damage/leak in the fuel line.

If the dirt is on the exhaust side then yes, the exhaust gasket can be worn out.
