The front timing gear cover seems to be leaking.
It is more common for the valve cover to leak rather than the timing cover. The timing cover may be saturated from the leaking valve cover. When diagnosing an oil leak, it is important to start from the highest point and work your way down. A leak at the top of the engine will saturate components below it. I suggest having a qualified technician pinpoint the leak and complete the necessary repairs to avoid further damage to the engine, due to low oil levels.
