Not necessarily. Mine had no other symptoms exept the sound of water sloshing in the dash area, and blowing out antifreeze into the overflow. No water in oil, no oil in water, no overheating. But.... if exhaust gasses are being blown past a compromised head gasket and into the cooling system, you will eventually build up enough pressure to blow past the cap and into the overflow. This would cause the level in the radiator to drop, while the level in the overflow would rise. Mine was definitely a blown head gasket.
