As usual, this morning a small puddle maybe4 to 6 inches in diameter. Not a huge amount. Looking at the front of the car it's about a foot right of center and about a foot back.

My son said on the wait home from work the oil light came on and some type of sound.

Have you been checking the oil level? If you're in the States, the oil light is for pressure. If your oil level gets too low, it can also trigger the light. So if you've been losing a good amount of oil and its triggering your light, that could be a problem. Especially since you now are getting noise associated...

Maybe the oil plug gasket needs replacing?

Take it somewhere else have them lift the car, clean the oil off and check for leaks if they don't find one immediately.

Check your oil regularly before running the engine until the problem is solved.
