Oil leak after a days riding

I do a days riding and find that there is oil all over my engine. it spews all over and comes out of the oil cap sides. I do not know what can be the issue. the oil was not even that hot. I ride in the dunes, so I do not know if that is the issue. I think i have the cap on tight, it has been doing this the last 2 times. The first time i thought that i just over filled it, i do not know maybe i did that again. When I check the oil on the dip stick before i go riding it says that it is low, so i fill more oil up and it does not show correct reading. I put in around 2 quarts, and had to put in around a third of a quart before riding. what is the proper reading of a dip stick, wait so often after pouring it in to check. I have a yz250f. thanks

Are you checking the oil when its warm or cold?

Bad seal around the clutch cover or case side cover? To get the correct reading you need to check the oil when the bike is cold..and make sure its not on the kickstand the bike has to be level.
