Power Steering Pump Question

98 Monte Carlo 3.1L

Is the power streering reservour cap vented?

Had a couple drips on the floor. PS pump area is wet.
When I removed the PS cap when the engine was warm I could hear a faint "pfft", as if there was pressure released.
Isn't the cap supposed to be vented?
Tanks.

The cap is vented thats why there is that rubber disc on the dip stick to keep fluid from splashing up. That isnt missing is it?

I assume the oil is being pushed pass a seal. The bottom half is damp.
Should there be a small vent hole in the top of the cap? Donut see any. Or isn't it vented.
