oil leak

im getting oil from somewhere between the transmission and the back of my motor , i was thinking rear main seal, im only losing about 10 drips a day but that can add up. My main question is whether or not a diesel is safe to run wwith a bad rear main like that if that is the case any suggestions on what else the leak may be or what to do, the fluid is definately oil!
