From the side it just looks like the banjo bolt. If it is my mechanic just added some tape to the thread and tighten it up

Leaking from the big grub screw into the timing cover? Pretty standard for them unfortunately.

Is it anything serious? Unfortunately that's the only photo I could manage to get.

I cant even figure out what oil you are talking about.

If the oil doesn't look wet, and if the car hasn't been offroad recently (for dust to cling to the oil making it look dry) I wouldn't worry about that oil leak.

If that's the worst thing you could find on that car, its worth the purchase!
And don't worry, its not my car! :)
