M3 E46 Valve cover gasket leak

Hi to all,

I found a leak on my S54, passenger front side. As far as I know, this leak comes from the valve cover gasket (see attached image). It is not dropping oil to the ground, but I would like to know if it is something I have to worry about.

When checking the oil level, it is about 2/3 mm above the maximum.

Thanks in advance.
