Did you check on the dip stick and also in the water header tank to see if the tell tale oil and water mixing were present.
You can buy a sniffer kit which will change colours if there are exhaust gases present in the water system. but is not cheap.
Ask the vendor if it can be taken to a local garage mechanic for inspection and testing and see what the reaction is and agree who will pay for the inspection

Good luck

Clean it off and see if it comes back.

Can just be from standing / short trips.
