One like that can be very hard to say for sure. With out knowing where it was parked and what the weather has been like etc you never know. So now if the cooling system as full as it should be?? Has it been raining there?? Also have you had a lot of days where it was cold then warm then cold etc. That is one you would have been ahead to have tried to open up the oil drain plug just till it started to drip so you could have looked for just clear water or green antifreeze but you would have had to do that before starting it up

This is good advice Old. Might not be a head gasket but condensation, etc.
Let the tractor sit for a few days and then crack the drain plug and see if any water or antifreeze drips out.

Thank you Ultra. Yep very hard to determine where water comes from in a tractor that you know very little about and could be nothing or a money pit
