Ok found my answer in the title... this is a sign some compression is leaking through the head gasket. If they are O rings its not very expensive.

X2. Clean the PV and check out the top end while you're at it 👍

after further inspection, I found the substance to be watery, which I now have to assume is coolant. would this also be the head gasket?

Most likely it is the head gasket (oring), but can also be damaged cylinder head.

probably a warped head, get your head checked and replace the head gasket

try tightening the nuts, if it doesnt stop, new gaskets (at least) are in order
