Nothing should come out of there. Is the inside of the bellhousing wet or did the leak materialize elsewhere and collect on the plug? Leaks in that area can be deceptive because there are a lot of components in a line, and gravity pulls everything to the lowest point. Often it looks like one thing is leaking, but the leak originates elsewhere.

i pulled the plug and there was maybe a little moisture and some grime but now it looks like it very well did originate from somewhere else iits either oil or coolant i think cause my coolant level is low though i have not noticed it getting lower and my oil is leaking cause i add some every week.
