last couple of months i've been seeing oil on the top of the dipstick(where the little arrow is) like its pushing up the dipstick tube.

oil pressure seems the same and isn't using any more oil than usual.

anybody have any idea what may be causing this?

thanks, Bill

Replace the o-ring on the dipstick, and R&R your PCV valve, hoses, and valve cover ports.
