That type of weep is fairly common, and generally harmless. It usually appears around where barrel bolts go into the head and is caused by the minute expansion and contraction of the joint due to heat. Keep an eye on it over the next few months and if you start to get a slight run of oil rather than the mist, re-torque the heads. Slacken the nuts back about half a turn and bring them back up to proper torque in "star" sequence.
