Leaking oil?

My vehicle has been leaking for some time and iv been lax about it. I drive a 1998 jeep wrangler sahara. This is my first vehicle since I got my license last august and im 16. Theres fluid around my undercarriage and I just cant find where its coming from. I cant even find the plug on my vehicle that drains the oil! I can find it on other vehicles but Im gettn super annoyed. So can someone point out to me the various spots oil can leak? And how to get to them.

Thnk you!

OK take a big piece of card board and place it under the motor on the ground then check after a couple hours . So above the drips is your leak.

the drain plug is on the pan just crawl under with a light

The drips are above the plug, but my guess is that the oil is dripping along the tank them falling, which is misleading.

I just had 2 recently, one from the distributor and one from the oil filter housing. Often times it could be head gasket leaks too.
