Get it up on jackstands and clean everything thoroughly, then use an inspection mirror and a good flashlight to find the leak if it drips anymore.

Its probably leaking where the oil filter attaches to. But yes, find the leak first.

^^^

After you check what others above have posted, there are more than a dozen bolts that bolt the oil pan to the engine block. They may be 10 mm bolts but I'm not positive of the size. There is a gasket between the oil pan and the engine block. Some of those bolts may have loosened over time due to engine vibration. Check all of them using a 3/8 in drive socket wrench with the correct size socket to make sure none of them are loose. Be careful and don't over tighten them or they'll break. It is possible some of your oil leak is coming from there?

Coupe, Premium package, sport suspension
Check the FSM for the oil pan torque values. Don't just go free-handing it.
