Default Head gasket replacement

good day guys...

i'm trying to replace the head gasket on my F5a engine.
however, im not sure if i have to resurface my cylinder head.. i noticed some dents on one of the cylinders... pls see attached pic a. i hope anyone could help me out.
im hoping it's just ok, and i just should replace the head gasket.
im also hoping you could give me some tips and an comments. i'm including here pics of the head and head gasket....

had to replace gasket as bubbles started to come out of the radiator... also the water was muddy in color with muddy colored slime on the cap. the oil in the crankcase was also with buble like milky colored.

ty in advance

done replacing the head gasket. now more smoke out of the tail pipe...
changed all the filters, checked all the vacuum lines...
im doing about 12-14km. (40-60kms/h driving)
cylinder compression has dropped from 180-165-180 to 160-145-160...
is there any way i could increase my mileage.. or increase compression without engine disassembly?
