Reliance 501 hot water heater

Hi Terry,
I just noticed that the water valve at the top of my 30 gal. gas water heater is leaking. Is it supposed to do this? It has a tag attached that warns against replacing it yourself and talks about water pressure. The valve seems to leak more when I'm using the hot water(dishwasher etc.)should I get a repairman or is there something I can do. There is a tray under the heater I assume to catch water if it leaks, but I've really never noticed it leaking before. We've had this water for five years. It has never had anything done to it. Any thing you can tell me would be appreciated.
