    Most oil caps will show a bit of "mayo", particularly if the car only does short journeys. Mostly it is caused by condesation when the engine is heating up, and is nothing to worry about. If however as you say yours is getting worse, you need to keep a close check on the coolant level. If the level is going down noticably in the header tank, then it could point to a blown head gasket. Means water could be getting into the sump.
