    It's more than likely just condensation, wipe it off and monitor.
    Does your oil look good on your dipstick?

    Just curious, is the car started and shut off before it gets to full oil temp?

    Never a good idea to start a car for short periods of time. Engine never gets to operating temp and wear occurs. Exhaust will never blow out the condensation and acids build inside causing corrosion. If you start it drive it.

    Condensation from short startups and short drives is the cause more then likely.
