Is is the hole on the right side of the motor? If so, it's called a weep hole and it's just a drain for the spark plug hole. If you have oil coming out of that hole, it can't be good. Make sure your spark plug is tight.

Welcome to the site!!!!!

^^ yup... first thing first, clean it up, and make sure the spark plug is tight... if it stills leaks, you will have to take the camshaft cover off, and replace a small circle rubber gasket that goes around the spark plug tube, this might be where it is leaking from.. or the most common.(if this doesnt help something more serious might have happened, but lets stick with the small stuff first)
