It appears your oil filter housing lid is weeping a little - either needs a new o-ring (which comes with the filter) or the lid has been over tightened and needs replaced which is pretty cheap also.

The leak and your service indicator are not related, the service saying -1400 may be that it was not properly reset last service, so it now thinks it is overdue. If you recently have had it serviced, take off the oil filter lid, it just unscrewed counter clockwise - they make a special wrench, but a strap wrench will do the trick. Make sure the big O-Ring on the cap is not cut or damaged, inspect the lid for cracks and if all looks good, just put a little oil on the O-ring and screw back on by hand until the 2 arrows (one on the lid, one on the housing) align. Clean off all the old residue and if it comes back, you probably need a new lid.

This is a different leak. It looks like the OP's oil cap is leaking, not the housing gasket.

This Happen to me and it was that there was two O-Rings install the older one and the new one. So it was leaking in the same way. Take the cover out and inspected and the repair would be simple. You can reset the service warning by going to youtube, there is various videos that show how to do it.
