Oil leak, possibly coolant too?

Like the title says, got home today and noticed some speckles of bright pink in the snow where my car was parked, so far as I'm aware the only fluid thats neon pink in a G6 is the coolant, so looks like I might have a slow leak somewhere. Are there any common spots for coolant leaks to appear on a G6 with the 2.4 Ecotec?

Also while looking under the hood I noticed that the top of the transmission casing is quite wet with engine oil, and theres puddles of oil forming in the nooks and crannies around the filter cap. It seems to be stemming from the filter area, my first guess would be the seal around the filter cap, but I replace it every time I do an oil change. Could the filter cap itself be damaged? Its not a bad leak as its been about 6000Km since the last change and the oil is still at half full on the dipstick, but I'd like to get this fixed so it doesn't become a problem in the future.
