Is this something I should be concerned about?

Just as the title states, I was under my truck today looking at the location where I'm going to install new EGT probe on exhaust manifold and noticed some wetness in these two spots. I think one is where the tranny meets the motor and the other is simply the oil drain plug. I was able to tighten plug just a tiny bit so maybe that will help, but should I be concerned about these two spots where it appears fluid may be starting to leak? There were no puddles under truck whatsoever, just wetness in these areas on the actual truck itself. Any and all help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

anyone? the first pic which I'm most concerned about is looking up at the front of transmission rear of engine oil pan. Trying to figure out what this could be and if I should be concerned or not

If it is, and it's not dripping leaking, is it something I can just keep an eye and not worry about repairing right away? Like I said before, it must be a small leak, cause I've had no puddles only wetness on trans housing

It just looks like the rear main. Can be anything in the motor valley too. HPOP fittings are right above that.
Other one just LOOKS like the drain plug. New gasket next time around, good to go.

If it is rear main, is this something I can live with for now?

I doubt it's the rear. But if it is, if you can live with it making a mess, leave it. If you can deal with puddles, leave it. If you're anal and have to have NO leaks, fix it. But as long as it's not impeding performance, it's like any other leak: it's no necessary to fix.

Wipe everything down really good and keep an eye as to where it's coming from. Go from there. Follow it all the way back from end to start to pinpoint the trail.

Mine looks the same, was kinda pissed off when I first got it I checked and it was clean under there. Then after driving for a month it looks like the pictures posted above. That's why they call them 6 leakers
