What do you mean by head? The black multiport valve? Where exactly is it leaking? You may be able to fix with new o-ring or seal. Otherwise you'll have to replace the top half or possible the whole valve

Oil is milky.

Coolant is mixing with the oil, so it is turning milky.The most possible problem is an cracked cylinder head or head gasket.Check them and get it replaced before it damages the engine worsly.. Dain the oil and have it refilled after replacing then broken part.

Hi my hyundai leaks a wee bit of oil into air filter and i have lost a cyclinder, could this be due to spark plug leads?

theres no possilble way oil can leak into the air filter as it is usually above the engine and it sucks in air not spit it out and oil doesnt go anywhere close to that, but that cylinder you lost is due to a cracked head gasket which is also why u would be leaking oil no idea how it got in your air filter tho usually the crack in the gasket will leak water into your oil so if you drain your sump there should be water in it unless its a minor crack if so you will be able to repair it with as little as spending 20 bucks

This sounds like a blown cylinder had gasket. Although on some engines you will find core plugs below the rocker coverin the head.
