Is the bolt loose?

If it is you can just tighten it.

If not, you should really put a new oil pan gasket in. :thumbsup

Back the bolt partially out and apply a small amount of RTV around the threaded part of the bolt all the way up to the underside of the head. Tighten the bolt up and you should see a small amount of the sealant ooze out around the head of the bolt. That should do it. While your under there tighten the rest of the pan bolts but don't overtighten them.
