Default oil in intake after head gasket job

Just replaced my head gasket at 95k miles. car wasn't burning oil at all and running absolutely fine for the first 500 miles. when i popped the hood to check my oil it was low (around half way between L and F) and I could visibly see oil soaking into the brand new intake manifold gaskets. I don't have a CEL. but i drive this thing pretty hard. I'm wondering if its a valve stem seal or PCV issue. any thoughts on what to check or how to diagnose this issue?

Pull your PCV valve and check it.
