I haven't had this happen before. I brewed last night and now its got a huge layer of krausen but the airlock isn't bubbling. I have put on a second airlock no difference. I don't see any cracks and if I try to burp it by pushing on the lid it will bubble. Does this seem likely to have some sort of crack somewhere?

Happens to me all the time. No worries. The Co2 is likely seeping out under the lid or something. As long as you have Krausen, you're fine.

I have had the Krausen act as a blanket...blocking the Co2...I put a spoon in and moved it around...as soon as I put lid back on ...it was bubbling.

If you have kreausen you have CO2 production. That gas has got to escape somehow so you have a leak somewhere. It shouldn't hurt your beer at all.
