Oil under y-axis motor

Sorry if already answered. 

I see some oil leak under my y-axis motor.

just under it. Anybody seen it ? And is it something to be worried about ?

Could it be coming from the y-axis bearings?

Thanks, i will try to do the recommended and lubricate them. It might be it. I have been printing more last days and spotted it. Thanks will let you know if it fixes the issue.
