It might be caused by coolant in the oil.

There is not any sign of creamy substance in engine oil tank or on cap, only a few spots on dipstick, the car is running fine with no overheating or cutting out, do I have urgent cause for concern?

Thank you for the clarity! There is condensation when a cold surface is exposed to water vapor, that is what you are seeing, just a bit of normal condensation. No worries!
