2001 996 adding oil, gel on the cap

Engine

Vehicle Information: Year: 2003; Body Type: Coupe; Total Mileage: 7100;

I bought a certified 911 in mid Oct. with 5100 miles. I have put on about 2000 miles since then. I recently checked the oil and added a quart (I know that this is normal). When adding the oil, there was a oily type substance on both the oil cap and at the top of the fill area. It was a light brown color with a gel-like consistency. A friend thought that it could have been from water.Any thoughts on what this might be? Could it be a problem? I am hoping to drive it from Philly to Florida next weekend and don't want any trouble.thanks
