95 Si Craigslist special oil leak. PICS INCLUDED!

Hey Guys,
Hoping someone here can send me in the right direction. I'm about a week into my craigslist civic project, and working my way through a bunch of small repairs.
Today I noticed that the car is leaking a little bit of oil around the oil pain on the drivers side. I've attached some pictures if that helps (sorry about the quality).
I think It might just be the pan or gasket, but because of the location, and my newb status, I need some real opinions.
The car is a 95 si and the oil is coming out from around the dip in the pan that accommodates the pulley.
Thanks

Looks to me like a gasket/silicone seal problem

Can't think of anything else, maybe someone else may have another idea

try to tighten the bolts closest to the leak, otherwise that pan has to come off and be resealed.

Thanks for the quick responses. I tightened the bolts around the location of the leak. I'll keep an eye on it. If the issue continues I'll replace the gasket... and pan pan if necessary.
