front axle vent tube valve leaking?

Got out of the truck after dinner today and noticed some fluid flung up on the inner side of my drivers side fenderwell.. got to looking and i seen the diff. fluid all around the bottom of the vent tube... im thinking maybe the vent valve that screws into the top of the pumpkin is bad or has lost its seal.. heres a pic. i did check and make sure nothing was leaking from above .tell me what yall think!
