The car is leaking oil onto the driveway, I just bought the car

(1999 Honda Accord)
We drove the car home to Fredericksburg from a dealership near San Antonio. It seemed to have clean repair records and nice interior and exterior. After having had it for less than a week, I noticed an oil spot on the driveway. The check Engine light and the oil light came on. I took it to WalMart garage, only to find out they couldn't tell me anything. They noticed it was leaking oil, added oil and sent me on my way. I have an appointment on Thursday to get a repair estimate. Any advice????
