2007 X3 3.0TD leaking oil from oil pan bolt (with images)

Hi All,
I discovered a couple of oil drops in my garage this morning. I went under the car and noticed that it's leaking from one of the oil pan bolts. Unfortunately I don't have the 6 point star sockets to check if the bolt is loose or not.

Has anyone have had or seen something similar?
Would tightening the bolt fix the problem or the gasket needs to get replaced?

My car has about 65K miles and has always been serviced.

Thanks in advance.
