Transmission leak

Today i noticed i have a pretty serious transmission leak on the drivers side of the engine and it looks to be around the power steering pump or around the top of it. I checked the tranny fluid today and it was barely registering on the dip stick so i know it has something to do with the transmission. The power steering reservoir looks good. I've never really worked on my motor, i've always had someone else do it. Does this seem like a line or fitting could be leaking or could it be something worse that these engines have that im not familiar with. Im trying to fix this before tuesday so we can leave for NC, if anyone has any input on what it could be or where i should check next, please let me know... Thank you

Not a good thing, a buddy with a 2003 had a leak on transmission from the top of it. Turned out the transmission had to be rebuilt. Something broke forget what it was now but it started as a pretty heavy leak till it started slipping.
Good Luck with it,hope you don't suffer the same fate.........
