No, the leak shouldn't be there. I attached a pic below showing the entire exhaust system. Copy my pic, circle where you see the leak, and then upload it for me to see.
The idea that it is getting near the catalytic converter tells me the leak is likely up high on the engine and not the pan. If I recall, the converter sits approximately under the front seat location. Was it dripping prior to starting the engine?
Let me know.
See pic below.
