Clean it off with aerosol brake cleaner and see if it returns, hopefully it is just a spillage from oil changes or some oil/grease used during assembly that the heat has melted making it more visible as it attracts dirt/dust etc

As Karl said. Clean it off and see if it returns. Are we looking at the rocker ?

Rocker cover is plastic so I would assume it's the head gasket seal that seems to be seeping oil!

Nope, I'm going to leave it while service is due and get it checked out.
