Should be easy one. Rear passenger side brake fluid leak

2012 Ford Flex brake fluid low light came on. I came home and saw the fluid leaked in the driveway. I looked under the car and took a photo. The fluid leaks more when I have the parking brake engaged would I guess would mean when the rear passenger side brake is applied. I can work on the brakes, and have had caliper seals go before on previous vehicles. From the photo, I am unsure where this is leaking from exactly. Does anyone know what is leaking from the photo? I can get under there further and take everything apart, I just want to make sure it is something I can fix and order the right parts. Thanks!

The seal for the actuator screw on the back of the caliper that applies the parking brake is leaking.
