Oil leak on a 2006 F-250 6.0

I recently purchased a 2006 F-250 Lariat, crew cab, 4x4, with a 6.0. It has 68k miles and is what appears to be a very well taken care of, stock (with the exception of an coolant filter kit), 1 owner vehicle. That being said, I noticed that the truck has a small oil leak between the transmission and the back of the oil pan. It leaks/weeps enough to get a drip or two on the bottom of the transmission and oil pan. At first I noticed the drip/leak was from the right side, but upon closer inspection, it appears to be damp around the base of the dipstick tube. Is there anything specific I should be looking at to tighten down before I take this into a diesel mechanic? Attached are some pictures. Thanks in advance.

thats really nothing for a 6.0

but a mechanic will probably run a dye to test for the exact leak location

rear main and bed plates are common

and pricey to fix

it won't likely ever just let go and leave you stranded

it will maybe drip more or maybe just stay the same
