Suppose I have about 60k in my Roth 401(k) account. (50k on contributions + 10k earned through trading stocks using the 50k over time)

I am a first time buyer and am planning to withdraw funds.. so I can withdraw only 10k tax free? Or can I first withdraw 50k as contributions and later withdraw the remaining 10k as its tax free for first time home buyer? ...how does it work?

Your math is fine, except employers might not permit the withdrawal. You'd have to go back to their rules or contact HR to understand the withdrawals permitted.
