Lot of smoke with burning smell

Recently, i notice a lot of smoke (i mean a lot) is coming out of the exhaust. So how do i confirm if there is a oil leak or the engine is burning coolant?

It is true most likely i would need to replace the engine gasket to fix this problem?

The color of the smoke may help you.

Sooty, really black -- fuel, emission systems
Blue -- burning oil or lesser fuel problem
White -- anti-freeze in the oil (bad head gasket?)

Have fun.
