I checked my oil the other day and saw light colored streaks running through the oil on the dipstick. The oil looks okay otherwise and my coolant level is not low. Is this condensation or a head gasket issue?

(2010 Volkswagen GTI)
I had the water pump replaced a year ago. I had trouble with the PCV valve failing and the intake getting all gunked up. I have also had to have the valve cover gasket, upper timing chain gasket and vacuum pump gasket replaced.
What seems to make the problem better or worse? It has been colder lately
How long have you had this problem? I just noticed the problem

Keep checking oil LEVEL - if it mysteriously increases - there is a problem.
