Most likely crank seal but could also be cam seal/s as well.
Crank seal is the most common these engines and easy enough to get to. Seal is u der $20 and called a front crank oil seal

yes as Pauly said it could be either the front crankshaft seal or 1 of the 2 front camshaft seals leaking oil. either way you will have to remove the cranks harmonic balancer plus the front plastic covers along with the timing belt to repair this leak , either engine seal or cam seal the belt needs to come off unfortunetly.

Not really as you need to take the front covers off.
Easiest way would be to remove passenger side cam cover and check that seal first, then remove drivebelt and alternator plus the idler/tensioner bracket and remove drivers side cover and check that seal.
To see crank seal you would have to keep removing stuff off the front but by that time you may as well just do the crank seal at the least anyways while you're there as it's very common.
