Exclamation Oil around my spark plug cylinder #2

Hey guys few days ago my car started to cut out and hesitate eventually misfiring on WOT... scanned it and it said missfire on cylinder 2. I had this happen when i first bought the car but on #6 it ended up being a coil pack. I figured it was the same thing so decided to change the coil pack on #2, once i took the old coil pack out i noticed there was oil on the end rubber tip of the coil pack and some oil deep down around the plug? What could be the cause of this ? im assuming valve cover gasket ? is there a possibility oil could have creeped through from a spill while filling it from an oil change ? Already checked all other cylinders and only #2 had the bit of oil in it... Anyone else have this happen ??
