A leaky screw ?

Hi all, am currently on an epic trip and noticed this greasy oily screw... Any clue what that may be ? Anything i should worry about?
Many thanks for the ideas.

Have you tried to tighten it any? It does not look like an oil leak. Maybe water mixed with belt dust?

Thank you for the responses.

It's definitely oily. I havent tried tightening as such (no torque wrench underhand), but checked whether it seemed tight, and yes. It's not loose .

I've cleaned it up and drove a couple of hundred miles since, nothing yet. It would seem odd for it to be a coincidence...

Behind are the clutch plates ?
