The Valve cover plug is a bad indicator since it seems to collect more condensation than anything else. If you don't have milky oil and the oil level hasn't risen any (since you haven't added any oil) you should be fine. If your getting good oil temperatures 215*-230* (Min) after a hard run, enough to burn condensation out of the oil everything will be fine. for some reason it won't clean it out of the cap though...
