You probably did not purge the cooling system. Check this out on how to purge the cooling system..... www.youtube.com/watch?v=xeTgmdRkQtY

By purge if you mean bleed all the air out I did open the bleeder valve ran it out til I had a steady flow and then closed it back up and filled to top and did 1 mor time

Yea but you have to run the vehicle to get it all out and circulated threw the heater core. Heat needs to be set on hot on the climate control. Watch the video.

What steps do I follow to find out if I have blown head gasket

It should show up with a cylinder compression test. White smoke coming out the exhaust, oil level rising in the engine, engine overheating are some other signs of a blown head gasket.
