Hard to say without looking at the lens. I would look into the lens itself wide open and stopped down with a light in the background to see if there is any fungus or oil inside the lens. Also check to see if the front lens coating is worn away. If there is a local camera repair shop you can have them check it for you. Eric at Pentax Camera Repair does excellent work on older Pentax cameras and lenses for reasonable prices. He's done 4 bodies and 5 lenses for me and they come back looking like new. Just my two cents.

My first guess would be a light leak on the body. Seals probably need to be replaced.

A seal kit is $14 on eBay. If you don't mind fiddly, meticulous work it's probably not a bad DIY job.
