Looks like the oil pan is leaking at the gasket. Is this usually the gasket or the plastic oil pan? Also, not sure if the sensor is leaking or not. Can i replace it later without removing the oil pan? I checked higher up, including the fill cap and no leaks running down to the bottom. 2015 with 65K.

It’s the gasket most likely, take the opportunity to upgrade to metal options. It’s not a difficult job so don’t stress about it. I believe sensor can be replaced but you’ll have to drain oil.
