ML350 Oil Drain Plug

I have a 2005 ML350. I have an oil leak someplace and thought I would get underneath and check the filter and plug. Being a novice, where are they located and are they easy to get to?

Filter's on top of the engine, in the front on the right as you face the truck. Drain plug is underneath, on the side of the pan. Left side as you face the truck.

So, are you noticing oil getting low, or leaving spots on the ground?

Leaving spots. First Ithought it was my power stering fluid, but the volume and intensity is too much for that small resorvour. So I figured I better get underneath and check. I had the oil changed a month ago and I suddenly had a small drip, now it is getting worse. But for the plug, is there a plate that I have to take off to get to it to check?
