Replace the manifold gaskets.

Word to the Wise: It would help to know what caused the leak. Bolts not tightened in correct pattern or torque, or just old age? Also, if manifold is aluminum, don't gouge the gasket mounting surfaces, only smooth w/ the yellow fingers tool you can get from SnapOn, or use fine sandpaper and a sanding block. Don't polish the surfaces either, or the gasket will slip or blow out.

Can a bad head gasket cause coolant to go inside intake manifold?

No, the head gasket is underneath the heads where they mount onto the block. Your intake manifold is bolted to the top of your heads. Some motors have coolant that circulates in the intake manifold ( I don't know what year or make your vehicle is ) so I would check my shop or repair manual. There could be a crack where the coolant flows through your intake manifold or one of the manifold gaskets may need replacing.
