Nope you should be fine that's from your valve cover breather it will look like that when it not fully heated it's just oil. When I put in my CAI in school the teacher told me what that is and said it's normal. But how ever if your valve cover gasket was bad and leaking watch you coolant if you start losing any you'll need to replace the thermostat housing its gasket and if you start to develop a misfire (car will feel bogged down and run like crap) you need to replace your coil pack. Both of the problems I told you about are linked to a leaking valve cover gasket. Good luck hope you dont have any more problems.
