Oil spots on garage floor

Recent days I noticed there were oil spots on the garage floor. They were 5” diameters. The color was light brown.

Looking below the bottom of the car, I could see the transmission pan is wet. I wonder which fluid is it, transmission or motor oil?

I recently changed motor oil at a local repair shop. Transmission fluid was serviced at 60,000 and 100,000 at a Ford dealer. 2007 limited AWD, now 133,000 miles.

Scheduled to drop off on Thursday at the local repair shop to take a look where’s the leak came from. As Ford dealer charging a lot more for diagnostic.

Although recent weeks, the noise seems a little changed or louder coming from under the hood, no burning smell after driving for 2 hours.
