Default Oil Leak ????

2000 Ranger XLT 4X4..143,000 miles..Noticed a few small drops of oil on the driveway about two weeks go. Crawled under the truck and noticed a little oil on the back side of oil pan and a little oil on the front of the bell housing. Since the find I have checked the oil and the oil reamains at the same level on the dip stick. Underneath is still a little wet after wiping it clean the first time the oil was noticed. Could this be a sign of the rear main seal starting to leak. Any input greatly appreciated.

Oil pan leaking or rear seal

If you can get some silicone around the back of the oil pan try to see if that stops any further oil
