The plugs are not a good indication of what is causing the blow by. The issue that is letting pressure is getting into the crank case will not necessarily let oil up past the rings. I had 2 busted pistons and was not buring oil and the plugs were fine.
As the others have said, drive it a little more before you panic. If it doesnt go away a compression and leak down test are in order.
