I dont recommend using additives to stop a leak on the transfer case. If the leak is on a shaft seal it will have zero effect anyway. Wynn's do have a couple additives that may stop seepage on gaskets but once again I do not recommend this. Fortunately, replacing a shaft seal only entails removing the shaft itself and then the seal can be pried out and replaced. Inspect the shaft itself as on a vehicle this old the shaft may have been grooved by the seal. This can be repaired by using a repair sleeve such as this.

Transfer case is leaking,is it ok to drive it ? Or should i just drive it sreight to the mechanics?

keep an eye on the leak, if it is a minor leak u can take your time about having it fixed, if it is a major leak then you can run the case dray and burn it up from lack of lube, that kind of leak needs attention now.

Only goes into 4WD sometimes

Well, other than rebuilding the transfer case, you can try changing the fluid and use a additive with the new oil. That may lube up the gears better from sticking into 2WD.

ase mechanic:

well depends how strong you are, and if you are using a car lift or doing on your back. either way drain the transfer case fluid, should be bolt on bottom, otherwise when you seperate the transfer case from trans there will big mess. take transfer case off first note how it is mounted with paint marker and then take trans out. much easier then leaving together.
