    Possible yes has your oil pressure dropped below normal. Are you loosing coolant? A head gasket can have an exterior failure..

    was the bottle test done at idle or high idle? that isn't that bad, yes a head gasket will leak oil but never bubble in the bottle, run bad or lose coolant it is simply an oil leak. degrease the crap out of it with some simple green, easy bake oven cleaner, etc. then steam clean it and run it at high idle up to temp to find out where it is coming from.
