Leaks are not usually a good thing, depends on the severity I suppose.
Poke your head underneath with a flashlight, engine oil leaking onto the exhaust should be visible from the front of the car. If it's the transmission output shaft seal, might be trickier to see but will be visible under the middle of the car. Mine was dripping occasionally onto the heat shield, discoloration on the heat shield under the transmission was a good clue.
