Blows coolant out the degas bottle

Hey guys i have an 01 LB7 and it keeps blowing the coolant out of the degas bottle. I'm thinkin it might be the head gaskets but i was wondering if anyone had an idea

see what the Chilton manual says about that one haha.. I'm not sure I would tackle the head gasket replacement on my own... but to my knowledge, no special tools required...
