water in tail pipe

I just had my thermostat changed and a new head gasket put on it was doing
fine and today i noticed that there was water dripping from my tail pipe
while the vehicle was running. the oil looks good not milky. Could it be
my head gasket again?

Isn't water one of the normal by-products of the catalytic converter?

While the exhaust system is cool, water will often condense in it from
the exhaust, and will drip out the tailpipe.
When the exhaust warms up, this should stop.
If you're worried the head gasket is gone bad, pull the plugs and see
if they are dry. If they are, it's just condensation.

No, water is a normal by-product of combustion.
