New oil leak - Need some advice -

I have a Mitsubishi Galant 2001 - Has about 125,000 miles on it - Get oli changes every 3000-4000 miles -

Just noticed I have an oil leak (on the driveway). My oil pan (my first thought) doesn't appear to be it - from what I can tell the oil pan is located on the right side (passenger side) of the car.....

My leak appears to be on the driverside up near the front - Like it is dripping off of where the Transmission pan is (or around there).

Plan to take it into an auto repair place - But would just like some advice on what it possibly is - So I have an idea of what I am talking about (and any auto repair place might be suggesting).

Thank you for any help -

Is the drip red or brown? Transmission fluid will tend to be a little reddish in color.
