Not for 1/2 quart
If it is up on the dip stick more than 1/8" over full

Check the oil with the engine warm & off. An accidental overfill of 1/2 quart will not hurt the engine. BUT, 2-3 quarts overfull will result in issues, and I would recommend draining that overfill out. But, 1/2 quart is really nothing to worry about.

It likely has little foam in it...most oils have an anti-foaming agent as part of their formula. just drain the pan and re-fill till it's at the proper level. Use a very clean pan and don't drop any road dirt from undercariage in there. Save and use extra for between service top off.

You have oil in the plug holes because the seals that are supposed to keep oil out are leaking-you need to remove the valve cover to replace them.
