Get under the car, look around the transmission and find it. Maybe a gasket. Maybe a cracked casing.

i looked under the car and its leaking right at where the engine and transmission meet

Sounds like it's the input shaft or torque converter seal and it's unusual that it would fail suddenly. It might have a pressure problem. Tow it to a transmission shop to have it checked out.
