Waiting for a pressure tester adapter to be delivered that I ordered last week. Intend to pressure up the cooling system to better pinpoint leak source. Also will be cracking pan plug to see if coolant ended up in oil.

Possible causes of leak are guesses at the moment. Some of those include flipped head gasket, wrong head gasket or cracked intake manifold.

Is it reasonable to assume that new head bolts can't be used again once they have been installed?
