Well I don't want to say anything for sure since I can't see your engine but it's not that uncommon to get that on breathers. I forget whether it's weather related or what the exact factors are that contribute to it. I do know it's not that uncomon to remove oil fill caps from vehicles valve covers and find the underside of the cap covered with a milky substance, usually on cars that are only driven short distances and not for long drives to really heat up the engine good. As long as the oil in the pan comes out clean it's probably nothing. Usually a good working PCV system keeps the breather clean because fresh air is constantly being drawn in through it.
