Could just be condensation on the inside of the rocker cover caused by short journeys, but keep your eye on the water levels to be sure

when doing an oil change watch out for the first bit of oil that comes out.. if it is water then investigate.

I also think it is condensation as Russ says.. wipe it off and keep checking it.

Isnt there a tool to check for gases in the water? can't think of the name of it.

Hi, I have exactly the same problem and it seems to have started just recently, same symptoms. I've been quoted 200-250 for a replacement head gasket, but am loathe to shell out at the mo, as it appears to run fine still. The garage I took it to, just recommended I keep a check on the oil and coolant levels. It started this around 80,000 miles and it only gets used on long journeys. Will keep you posted as to the outcome.
