Vacuum pressure in oil pan??

Well shut the engine off and heard a hiss.. Went over to the oil dipstick and as soon as I pulled it it sucked air in...I have never seen this before... I am running a pcv valve on the driverside head but have no breather...

Is this an issue??

Thanks in advance

You need a breather on the other side.

Autozone has some cheap plain chrome ones that fit. Kinda old school looking. That's what I use.
