It's pretty impossible to tell where the actual leak is. You need to clean things off and then try and isolate the source, or at least get under there and try and find the newest/wettest spot after you drive it.

like teflon said just clean everything off as best as you can check under the car too make sure theres not a bigger leak under there. At our shop we have the customer come back after 500-750 miles after cleaning the oil off. Theres a couple things behind the cover that could be the issya. How many miles on the car?

You really need to clean it off before you can tell. Oil spreads like crazy so it could be coming from anywhere in there. I doubt it's coming from that bolt since very few bolts actually also plug something other than power steering. It's probably coming from somewhere else.
