No, just some condensation. Usually changing the pcv valve and the breather along with regular oil changes clears this up.

Exactly. Plus you may want to take it out for longer drives every once in awhile. Get it good and warmed up to operating temperature for an hour or two. That'll help burn off the condensation from the crankcase. But first do as Rowefast said, replace the PCV valve and inspect the hoses. Clean or replace the breather cap as well. HTH. -Jim
