A loose bolt on transmission?

I noticed there is a bolt on left side of what I believe is the transmission and it is protruding downward. Is this a loose bolt or is it supposed to be half way screwed in?

Pls help check yours....

Where is the front jack point of F15?

I looked under the car briefly, and did not see an obvious jack point. Do I have to remove the under cover to expose the jack point?
