Water/grey Smoke, Coolant Loss, Overheatinghead gasket

Also - I’ve noticed a very slow drip of clear water from the underside of the engine, drivers side but can’t see where it’s coming from - any else faced these problems and found successful solutions with this particular model -

Head gasket issues are rare with the 2.8CRD in my experience.

Obviously I can't say it isn't a head gasket but I have owned vehicles with the same engine for years and used to read forums a lot and there was never really much mention of head gasket problems that I recall.
First step for me would be a compression test. How bad is the coolant loss? Have you been topping it up a lot?
White / Grey smoke could be unburnt diesel or possibly oil from the turbo as well as coolant.
Clear dripping water could well be normal if from the air con system. I can't remember exactly where it drains from off hand though.
