oil leak

Have a 2007 non-MC 20,000 miles bought new. Noticed an oil leak on garage floor that I investigated today. Coming from 1/2" diameter access or vent area on bottom of crankcase. Looking into hole, see the starting ring (flywheel). MC has an automatic transmission. Appears like a main seal leak.
Anyone with similar experience or have heard of same or recall situation. Thanks.
