not unless you have coolant in your oil(it would look like chocolate milk on your dip stick) its probably leaking out somewhere up above and dripping down to that spot where your finding it. wipe everything down, start the engine and watch it as it runs to see if you can identify its point of origin.my guess would be the radiator hose or the thermostat housing. hope this helps
the plug is the lowest part, so any leak above it will end up at the plug, so make sure it has a good gasket at the plug. you may need to get some "brake cleaner" and clean any oil off, and then run the car and determine where the leak is originating from.
Clean the present oil off with brake cleaner spray. Then make sure everything is wiped clean. Start it up and while its running check for small cracks where the oil drain plug is located. Sometimes when the oil plug is threaded back in, people torque it down to tight causing the pan to develop hair line fractures in the pan. I'm assuming your talking about the oil pan drain plug? Also look for trails oil oil that may have come from somewhere above and trailed down to the area you are looking at.
Could it be the rear main seal? Some times oil can be "blown" around in bell housing from fly wheel. If you can pry the inspection plate with a little regular screw driver and oil starts to come out its a good chance its the rear main
If it is not the suggested gasket that is leaking then it is the oil pressure switch located exactly above the oil filter adapter. The black plastic housing could have developed a crack and oil will ooze downward and drip off the bottom of the adapter. I had this problem and changing the oil pressure switch took care of it.
