Well, you need to remove the timing cover and look. Anyway, if it leaks to the timing belt it's a problem, since the belt can slip.
Make sure the PCV valve is in good condition. When it clogs it creates high crank case pressure, therefor oil leaks. The PCV valve is an inexpensive part, so if it's dirty just replace it.
