Hi there. A couple of small spots is sure sign that something is leaking. What color are the spots? If they are dark they could be engine oil, if red they could be transmission fluid. A leak is something that you really don’t want to put off as this could lead to other internal problems if the fluid level drops low enough.
Check the fluid levels before driving to ensure they are in their respective safe zones on the dip sticks. If not, then add the correct fluid needed until it reaches the safe zone and have it inspected immediately. If you’re unable to pinpoint the issue yourself, YourMechanic has several available technicians that can assist you with an oil leak inspection and provide you with an estimate and direction of repair.
