Oil in the air filter?

Hey Guys,
I just got my first YJ and I've been poking around the engine a bit and I found that the PCV filter is saturated in oil and there's even a bit pooling in the bottom of the filter assembly. Im not too familiar with the 258 but is this normal, and if not what could it be?
