Slight Emulsification 2.2JTS

Just topped up the oil and noticed there was very slight emulsification under the oil cap. Car appears to be running OK but maybe using a little more oil than usual. Now at 104K miles with no engine problems to date (camchain etc).
Should I be worrying that the head gasket is the problem or could there be another reason?

Slight is OK. Depends how slight far.
I would suggest to open and clean breath- valve located middle top air intake manifold with 22JTS. All rubbish are normally there. Be careful unclip cap. Easy to damage.
If this valve is fully loaded same rubbish you can see in next upper point like oil cap.
For eventual head gasket issues check coolant ( level and visual quality ).
Hope it is OK.
