I woke up an drove to work, not far 3 miles or so. Sat in parking lot for about 15 min with car idle. The temp got about halfway or so up to max. Turned off the car an checked the radiator after 2hrs of cooling down. Almost empty if not empty. But no leak spots at home parking spot or around the car. Was told it was a head gasket

Any white smoke coming from the tail pipe? Oil look like chocolate milk? Car idling or running rough? Exhaust smell like coolant?

I’d say run a compression and/or leak down test on you cylinders.
