Oil leak

I've got a crappy problem going on that I just noticed the other day, theres oil leaking through where my header bolts to the head. Not sure how to explain this. But is this a head gasket issue? Thanks!

It looks like a head gasket going south... But it could be the exhaust gasket leaking too. Buddy 92 Dodge has the same wet spot but coming from the exhaust ports (gasket in-between). I'm not sure if a oil gallery travels up any of the bolts either?
