Had mine leak really bad last year. Took it to dealer cause I was out of town got it back both now leaked oil and was everywhere after a 500mile trip. Still had enough fluid in there I would check it but I wouldn't stress over it. AND yes it is your axle shaft seal there is no outer seal just a dust shield on the outside of the axle tube. Its really not a bad job to do yourself if you know your way around a truck. I wouldn't do it if you don't do much work yourself. You have to pull the wheel bearing hub off (4 bolts and some muscle or a puller) to get the axle shafts out and then remove your carrier assembly(also only 4 bolts) inside the housing cause the seal is put in from the inside. Make sure you torque it to spec and not hulk this stuff. Good luck!
