Oil leak issue

Ok so my 98 Chevy C1500 4.3L standard transmission truck had a bad oil pan gasket. So I dropped the pan and cleaned the hell outta the pan, replaced the gasket, and bolted it back up. The oil pan seems fine but now I've been noticing what looks like oil leaking from the holes of the transmission housing where it bolts to the oil pan. Any suggestions? Could it be the main rear seal?

Is it engine oil or transmission fluid. Engine oil possible valve cover gaskets or main seal. Oil can leak from almost ant place and run back to drip there. Another place to loom is oil pressure sender. Tranny oil transmission leak.

Is there an inspection cover there? If so, remove it, wipe it clean with a rag & run the engine.
