Default smoke coming out of dipstick hole thing

okay...so i don't know why i took the dipstick up a little while the car was running but i realized it smokes out of there...like a steam engine... is it supposed to do that? it's not the headgasket, and there is no coolent in the oil...just changed the oil actually...
