Should I cap this open coax end? I just had Dish installed and all the ends are capped except this one. I know signal leakage can cause real issues with cable/internet.

You dont need to, but if you do make sure its a weather cap and not a terminator cap. Visibly the difference is that the terminator has a pin and a bump on the cap and the weather one does not, and its cap is flat.
