Truck leaks right after I turn it off

My truck always leaks whenever I shut it off, it seems to be coming from between the bell housing and the engine, and its dark, so it should be engine oil. It's fine while its running, it only leaks for a little bit right after I shut it down, only makes a puddle about the size of my open hand.

Do you
have the same problem?

Is it an easy fix? Is it urgent? And about how much do you think it would cost?
