I am new to mathematica and am trying to make a coin flipping simulation however mo code isn't working. When I tell it to count the number of head it gives me a bad count. The code I am using is listed below any help would be greatly appreciated.

y[n_] := Block[{g, s},
  g := RandomChoice[{"head", "tail"}, n];
  s := Count[g, "head"];
  {g, s}
