Oil on spark plugs 1 and 3

Hello!

So I did my spark plugs yesterday while doing my rotors, pads, and oil. So just so we are on the same page about what cylinders I am talking about, imagine you are directly in front of my car. So from front to back it is cylinders 1 - 6. Cylinder 1 being front and cylinder 6 being the back. Cylinders 1 and 3 had a good amount of oil on them when I pulled them out. All other spark plugs were fine. I am guessing it is because the valve cover gasket but I just want to get some opinions before I go replacing parts. Other things that has happened because the oil on the plugs are long crank start ups sometimes and smoke coming from exhaust but stops when car is beginning to get warm. Below is a pic of the plugs. Left being spark plug 1 and right being spark plug 6.

Thanks in advance!

I'm pretty sure it's your valve cover gasket.

Check the valve cover for cracks around cylinder 3 as well so you don't do the same job twice.
