Exclamation 5.9 cummins oil leak

So I looked under my truck and saw oil on the back of the oil pan(front of the motor) and oil above the oil pan in the crevis behind the pulley(or whatever that is) But not enough to drip in driveway. wiped away the oil with a rag the best I could, drove it around the block and didn't notice new oil. So I don't know if I didn't drive it enough or if it is just old spilled oil or something... Someone please help me!!!

My guess would be a slight leak/seep from the front main seal. Mine does the same thing, I believe it is pretty common.

05.5 2500 slt 4x4 QCsb g56- Spec ST dd, 6" BDS la, some Carli stuff, Toyo MT 37's, Diprocol/Isspro, Smarty, AMP, Stainless Diesel, Fluidampr, Crazy Carl, FMW62/476 on the way... A bunch of other stuff...
