You need to have a mechanic look at it. Either there is a flaw in the threading that the filter is screwed onto, or there is a flaw in the flat plate that the filter's rubber gasket presses against, or there is a flaw in some part of the engine very nearby that area that is leaking oil *onto* the filter (not *from* the filter).
Life would be very bad if the something that's wrong suddenly gave way and dumped your oil out of the engine, so get it checked out soon.
