Transmission leaking fluid rear of tran oil pan

Just recently discovered a leak on my F350 6.0 dually. It seems that there is a medium leak near the rear of the oil pan. It looks like it is coming from the top on the pan near a weep hole? I talked to my diesel mechanic and he was saying that fords are know for transmission over heating, so the oil expands and gets blown out of the top near a weep hole? not sure if weep hole is the right term.

My question is what do you guys think? Should I get a transmission cooler or is there another issue causing this?

My shortest drive is 1 hour every day so i need to figure this out soon.

Mine did that when heated up towing in traffic shop overfilled it a bit when cold so blew the excess out. After one decent puke after putting it in park after heavy towing in traffic and 90 plus weather it never did it again and fluid level appears fine.
