You'll have to jack the car up. Look around the oil filter. It may be the oil pressure sending unit. Could be the oil pan gasket also. Just have to see, may want to go to a shop and get it up on a hoist so you can see better.

I found that it sometimes hard to see an oil leak with oil all over the bottom of the engine, I lift the car get a foaming engine cleaner and clean the bottom of the engine, leak it dry and then look i find it easier to find the leak...
