If you hit a rock, maybe your oil pan.
inspect the car from below.
if you cannot find it, use a degreaser and clean the engine compartment, then, put some powder on the engine and start the engine. the leak should show up.
check your oil level as well, if you drop a lot, you may need more oil to start your car safely.

Check under the car for oil leaks, if there are none then it was what you hit, hitting the bottom of your car. If it still runs fine I wouldn't worry about it
