Dave Carney Gettin' there
I think it's your head gasket. Cylinder #1 is generally where they blow. Here is a pic of my wife's engine (2002 Grand Am) that I took during my teardown. Note how nice and clean the #1 piston is from the steam cleaning action of the leaking coolant.

Go ahead and tear it down, use a good felpro headgasket and the problem solver LIM gasket while you are at it. They are worth fixing.
