this can't be good

Well I had to reseal the rear differential cover bc it was leaking. While I was cleaning it, I discovered this chewed up bolt at the bottom. How bad is this? It was driving fine before, I just discovered the leak bc I only drive it once s week and saw a small puddle underneath.

That looks like a carrier bolt. Jack the back of the jeep up and spin the ring gear and look at the bolts that hold it to the carrier and c if one is missing. Also u should check ur ring gear for chunks missing
