Default 06 wrx. oil leaking from block above oil pan.

had a question. there seems to be a gold colored allen plug right above where my oil pan is on my 2.5l 06 wrx. it is leaking oil but after researching google with as many phrases i could think of, i am finally stumped.

i haven't gotten under the car since the last time i changed my oil but noticed this plug was leaking oil and was leaking down the front side of the oil pan.

any suggestions what this gold allen plug is? tighten the allen plug up? or is it more serious than that?

any answers would be key. gonna go home from work now and furthermore inspect it.

If you could take a picture that would help

It's probably just a plug, in which case you should tighten it

posting from work. will post a picture when i get home.

i'd say it's front portion of block, mid block, just right above and infront of the oil pan.
possibly an oil line but is an allen plug and is gold.
