Find the leak! Don't drive it until this is fixed unless you want a new transmission.

Check to see if one of the transmission cooler lines has sprung a leak.

Bob has a point and Oldsorgnpower has a good point too but if it's the front seal there's a reason, the bearing in the front bearing( cam bearing type ) in the front pump is worn this can be confirmed by the ridges on the torque converter input sleeve!! Just replacing the front seal won't fix the under lying problem for long ( About 6 months } A correct fix would be to replace the following parts ( torque convertor , Front pump bearing . Front seal and retaining clip
