Question type: Maintenance & Repair

This 06 cobalt has condensation on the oil filler cap and a white residue on the dipstick. Still runs ok just wondering
what would cause this?   The coolant is still full and nothing is leaking!

It takes around 30 minutes of running to get the oil up to normal temperatures. Change the oil since spring is here and warmer days are coming soon.
