Cracked Head gasket

Does any know what causes this. I was leasing my 2003 GT (71k miles)and bought it 2wks ago. Had it inspected they said my intake mainfold was starting to leak. Yesterday I got a pressure test & they tell me it's actually my head gasket is cracked. I haven't had problems with overheating. I left my car warmup before I pull off in the morning (95% of the time). The only thing I notice is the idle sounds bad and when I get off work the car is cold, like it has been sitting overnight. I'm I stupid and just didn't see any signs? I just want to prevent this in the future.

Thanks

Thanks I will. I know the common cause is overheating. But I never had that problem so that's why this seems so weird. Thanks again.
