Should i worry about the white stuff? I shone a lift into the rocker cap, the rockers seem fine.
Its been low on oil for about a week, due to me getting oil from my dad, who's business gets it direct from a supplier. I use castrol gtx 10/40 if i remember correctly.

this normally happens when you have a head gasket start to go or has gone.
check you coolant reservoir for any similar signs, and remove your rocker cover and have a look you will see more than just looking in the oil filler cap.
Have you been loosing power or performance out of the car?
Do you know when the head gasket was last changed? sometimes people don't allways flush out the engine properlly after changing a headgasket and you can still have residual white froth in it which will come to an opening in the end..say a breather or your coolant reservoir

Clean the breather and give it some longer runs, not just round to Kanes and back
