A fuel leak is it a sensor?

Got guys went to fire up the obs this morning and looked under the hood And it was dripping diesel and the leak was coming from what looks to be a sensor on the side off the fuel bowl. Is this the fuel pressure sensor? Need to know what to order from napa so I can fix it so I ain't losing mpg lol.
