On the center of your trans pulley is a black rubber cap that has a little orangish grease in it from the factory. Is this cap on? Does it appear to be the same grease that is either in the rubber cap or smeared on around the Phillips screw or drive lug the cap covers? If we are only talking about a little bit, I would not worry about it. If you are not seeing water below, or oil forced up into your tub, it sounds like just lube that has dripped from the years. If your lower trans seal was bad (lip seal), you would have black trans oil leaking down the center of the shaft.
