Welcome!! It could be a valve cover leaking. I wouldn't imagine it would leak after 35K
I would try and find anywhere oil has been and clean the hell out of it. Then check back to see if there is in fact a leak. Or if it was a spill..

Well I know its not the valve covers because they are spotless and I got it back from dealer and they also think its the intake gaskets lower and upper maybe even head gaskets leaking not really liking the problems I have with the car already but it has a good powertrain warranty so all in all I'm ok with it. It looks like someone used gasket maker on the ends instead of a gasket kit like they were suppose to but this dealer said they would make sure it got fixed the right way this time.

well good thing you got the warranty and your dealer is willing to make it right. Sucks that someone didn't do the job right the first time!
