Hello there !

Are you sure it's not just the valve cover gasket ? (if it is then this is really nothing very serious...) Does your car overheat ? white smoke from the exhaust ? Then it might be the head gasket : that is a pain to replace. Give us a bit more details and we' should be able to tell you what's going on...
sorry, i was replacing the rear main seal at my house and noticing the leak.
