Thanks for the reply. I think this is the problem. You have described the appearance of the drip perfectly. So, I will take everyone's advice.... fix the leak; don't fill the leak.If you see a small bit of oil on your oil filter and all over your oil pan. Probably dripping from oil cooler and spraying everywhere while driving. Just did mine and it fixed those problems. The oil was also puddling in the grooves on the top of the oil pan.
