Rear main leak?

I tried searching but found differing answers, so I figured I would ask here.
I have noticed the past few times I have taken the car out that there is oil and a pinkish fluid on the garage floor.
I took it in today and they say it is just the rear main that is leaking. This is a pic of what it looks like(front of car on driver side would be where the pinkish fluid and oil drops are)
Does that seem like the only thing that would be wrong or should I ask them to check more?

there a ton of threads regarding oil leaks...I highly doubt it is the rear main seal that is leaking. Check out my other posts regarding oil leaks..

the pinkish one is coolant and there is a tsb on it..look in the driver side towards the front of the engine, you'll see where it is coming from.

Gaske, I'm not a mechanic but if you're not sure of their diagnosis you can always try another GM dealer in your area. You should be able to take your vehicle to any GM dealer in your area and get your vehicle serviced. I hope that helps get this taken care of for you. Let us know how things go for you.

Thanks guys, I just got it back. It shows they checked the oil cooler, and rear main. Shows they replaced a gasket and housing.
I will keep an eye on it to see if the issue returns or not like I have seen in other threads happen.

Dexcool isn't pink, it's orange.

Based on the location it's one of two things, power steering fluid or the high temp gasket maker GM uses on the oil pan and rear main. Power steering fluid is more red so I'm guessing he lost a seal somewhere.
