How can you tell it's burning oil? If the exhaust is smoky white, the timing of the smoke (at start-up only, or when warmed up only, etc.) will help a great deal in determining what's gone wrong. If the bike does not smoke but the oil level drops noticeably, that's a totally different can of worms.

its smoking white and im afraid to leave it running too long because i may cause more damage,its also leaking oil from the exhaust where it connects to the engine

Is the bike hard to start? the rings might be getting tired alowing oil to go to the top of the piston.
