Dang red leak

So I've scowered this site and the nation and haven't found anything quite like what I have. No mods on the truck really just an exhaust and intake. Bought the truck 8000 miles ago. It has 130000 miles now and had a tranny flush 15k ago but I wasn't the owner then so I have no details except what the owners manual has in it. Now the problem, I towed our four place sled trailer loaded with sleds up the mountain today. When I went to move the truck I noticed a little pile of red snow. I inspected under the truck and there were a few drops coming out of the inspection plate but it soon stoped. I removed the plate and everything was as clean as a whistle under there not sure where it came from. This was the first thing towed with this truck. I tightened the screw on the torque converter but I cant see that being the cause. Other than that she shifts like a champ no slipping or anything. Was this just a fluke? Give me anything other than a tranny to mess with and I would be fine. Thanks for any input

Thanks man so does that means the tranny should proably be dropped and looked at because I don't think much can be done without dropping it.

"scoured the sight" I don't think so. Don't mean to be sarcastic but I've mentioned this so many times I'm tired of it.
If the front seal is grey, though it away. NO WAY, GREY.
When it gets hot, it looses it's elasticity. Get's sloppy loose.
Easy fix or leave it alone and spend thousands later. The replacemnet seal should be black or blue, the flexible part, that is.
