You can put it off for a little while if there are not other problems but you need to replace the head gasket. Any coolant in the oil, water in the oil or white exhaust smoke?

None that I can observe. Will take to another shop for assessment. Thanks

Be aware that if you let it go and you get water in the oil you will probably damage your engine and you may end up stranded somewhere.
