Husky PW HU80432 losing oil!

Hi all, was using my pressure washer today and noticed a small pool of oil right up under the pump. The pump continued to work ok and I finished the job. Is it possible to add additional oil to these pumps or is my pump on its way out?

not sure if my message went through sounds like the seal is worn or the bushing where the shaft goes in the pump is worn.

Thanks for the response Tim. Looks like this model pump is a "throwaway." I examined it and found no plugs to add oil or sight glasses showing oil level like I've seen on others. Vendors do not show any repair parts for it. If and when it quits working , I can get a new one for right around $100.
