Iíve been driving it after cleaning off old oil for three days and there has been no new oil, so I donít think it is leaking.

When I originally posted I assumed you had a confirmed "small oil leak" and not just oil residue lol. Sometimes **** like that can happen just from changing the oil filter or spilling a bit when filling through the valve cover. Residue I don't even worry about unless it is wet enough to form droplets.
