I wouldnt worry about your head gasket.

This is not a common enough problem to stress over. Ive had a 95, 03 and now 08 and monitor my parents 2018.

Head gasket issues were common prior to 2005. (1st, second, 3rd gen). Vehicles manufactured 12/2005 and later are low risk for head gasket issues, assuming normal use and maintenance. As noted heat is not your friend, so dont let your engine overheat and keep an eye on the coolant. I would continue to follow the maintenance recommendations and recommended fluids.

Even with bullet proof reliable toyotas, occ issues come up with head gaskets, transmissions etc, but are relatively uncommon in comparison to other vehicles
