probably the converter bleeding down. Seems like there is another thread on here with the same kinda issue.

Mines leaking in the same spot...not sure if it is the pan gasket or the dip stick tube seal? We're gonna replace the pan with a deeper pan and new filter kit anyway so we'll probably replace the tube seal while we're at it!

Not an expert but I think the torque converter holds a substantial amount of trans fluid. I believe when the car isn't run for awhile the converter drains back down and kinda floods the pan and the extra fluid finds places to leak. This is what may be happening. A week doesn't sound like it should be doing it but I'm not sure.
