Could be the front crank seal. In that case it wouldn't be too hard to change while doing the timing belt.

try to look around a bit and see. some times you can see an area that has a large amount of dirt stuck to it and that will be the leak, but if you dont keep your motor clean then its gona be hard.

Your cam seal/seals might also be leaking and "draining" down toward the center too so check them out, when you're under the timing belt cover. If the front cam seals are leaking/seeping, recommend checking the rears too because when there's one leaking, there's the potential for the other end to leak too.
Just a thought.
