Gasket leak?

Just noticed this on the Right side of the engine, but likely has been there awhile.

The Left side of the engine is the third image and appears clean.

2004 r6 26k miles. Haven't done the valve adjustment yet.

Oil dipstick is showing full oil.

Looks like the valve cover gasket is seeping a little. Not real unusual.
Like Bluewave said, clean it off and keep an eye on it. Maybe replace the gasket when you do the valves.

Looks like valve cover gasket.
After cleaning it sprinkle a little baby powder on it and see if it's just a seep pr a full blown leak.

Might want to go ahead and check your valves and replace that gasket while you're in there. 2 birds, one stone and even less worries
