Could be either. There's a fuel overflow tube that comes out at the carb which is close to where you're talking about, and there is rubber o-rings around the top and bottom of the push-rod covers, one of which that could have gone bad, causing a bit of an oil leak. Also if the valve cover gasket is bad it could have a leak coming down on to the cover. If you can post pictures, it would be easier to see.
