oil leak.

So I changed my oil on my 2002 f250 noticed the plug was over torque. I bought a new one put it on. I looked at threads saw nothing was damaged on the oil pan. The new plug went it so smooth zero problems with it going on and aligning. I looked under there today and noticed drip of oil on the bolt part of the plug. It's torque down right though. The new bolt I can't remember if it had a rubber gasket though. Could that be the cause? Or could it be running down from somewhere else. Iv always had a little oil on the bolt but this time seems like it a little bit more.

I have a copper washer on my drain plug bolt. I replace the washer every couple of oil changes. I don't have any drips. Is it possible you forgot to add the washer?
