Cool 97 626 low compression

Hi guys. Been reading a lot of threads but never posted. I have an issue now and im looking for ideas (confermation really) my 97 626 2.0 blew a lower rad. Hose and over heated. I replaced the head gasket due to low/no compression. Now engine is very hard to start. Worse when cold. Once its started it drives good. Did a compression test and this is what i got.
#1=90 PSI
#2=40 PSI
#3=40 PSI
#4=90 PSI

#1=120 PSI
#2=50 PSI
#3=40 PSI
#4=100 PSI

My question is rings? Or warped head? Maybe both?
