Default Early symptoms of HG Failure?

My Forester is a 99 with the SOHC EJ25. This is not the original motor. The new motor has about 70,000 miles on it and was installed professionally. Yesterday as I was driving the cabin began to fill with a white haze. I pulled the heater motor to see if leaves were caught in there, but there was no evidence of burning. Later, I noticed white smoke pouring from around the manifold and it seemed there may be a very slight bit of water getting into the oil and the coolant is slightly discolored. My initial impression is obviously head gaskets, but the other symptoms are not there. The car is not overheating and there is no sign of bubbling or overflow of coolant.

Am I in the early stage of head gasket failure and if so have I caught it early enough to avoid head work or any other major problems? Could this be something else?

Sounds like a HG to me.

It's strange that your cabin filled with smoke...
