Go Daddy has a few different products and options. Website Builders 6 and 7 are legacy products and no longer available for purchase. There is no easily available support for adding scripts, however, there are guides that may assist.
If you are using Website Builder Version 6, the document linked here has instructions for adding a script to page headers on pages 18 and 19.
For Website Builder Version 7, you can find instructions on how to add Google Analytics to your site on page 79 of this document. You could use these instructions to also install Google Tag Manager, or the Tracker script directly.
GoDaddy's latest builder, Websites + Marketing does not appear to have a way to add custom scripts to the header. Though they do advise on how to install 'custom code' here, Tracker is designed to run inside the header - not as a script in the body. Installing in this way may not work.
If you still have trouble or aren't sure of your options you can contact GoDaddy Support here.
