Drivers Side Coolant Leak

I have a coolant leak on the drivers side. I believe it's the head studs leaking again. I have this issue earlier this year from a couple exterior ones along the bottom under the header flange. When you chase the threads, where does the gunk go to? I know the studs protrude into a coolant passage, hence the need for thread sealer and my previous leak, but when you chase the threads, where does all the gunk that's in the threads go to? I am hoping it's not a blown head gasket. They are both new and I am not experiencing over heating. In fact, the car was running cooler than usual yesterday. Maybe because it wasn't as hot as other days. I am not down on power, aside from the carb issue, but that's for another thread and I don't have any white smoke coming out the tailpipes. I just need to know what I have to do to get all the gunk that's it the threads so it doesn't get into the motor. Thanks as always.
