That's usually a sign that oil, or coolant is leaking into the cylynders, In either case you probably have a leaking head gasket, or worse case, a cracked engine block.

I need to put on my cylynder head gasket seal and my vehicle is blowing out white my problem my seal or something else?

in general when car smokes ( white ) it burns the engine lubricating oil this because the sealing rings ( triple for each piston ) not doing their job any more or for another reason the cylinder wall itself due to the continuous friction between wall and seal o rings it creates a very Little gap that allows the oil to enter the combustion chamber and mixed then burned with fuel generating that white smoke and decreasing engine pressure
you will have to replace the cylinder head gasket since you are going to reveal the head to get into the pistons seal o rings
if the cylinder walls got little wider due to friction don`t panic you will get lager seal o rings to skip such a problem
