Pressure in crankcase/Help

I am working on a 06-660 that has 100 hours and 500 miles.
Been in a barn for 2 years due to water in oil. Son in law abuse.
Changed the water pump, filled with Royal Purple and was flushing the radiator. Using 1/2 water 1/2 vinegar. Seems like I am getting more oil the more I flush.
While idling I unscrewed the dipstick to see if it had water in the iol.
It sprayed a mist out as soon as I unsealed it.
Is this normal or do you think it has a blown head gasket?

They will blow a mist of oil out of the dipstick tube when running.
