oil leakage from above ?

I just made a long journey (about 1500 km) with my 2005 r5 tdi touareg. when i was home I saw some oil leakage, there was no warning of low oil level. I was worried. i cleaned the engine and the entire car. they told me the oil came from the place where the oil change is done due to the loong journey and high pressures and temeperatures. but i am still worried that is why I am writing here. what should I do? Thank you

The R5 leaks either from tappit cover, tandem pump or water pump access cover.
