I dont mean to sound like a jerk but no one is going to respond to your question. you have to investigate it yourself and trying doing a search on what seal or gasket it could be once you've possibly located the area on the engine.
Try being more specific and doing some homework on your own first, it just doesnt get handed to you here. GL with your problem.

It could be one of the many seals, the head gasket, the valve cover, the oil drain plug, the oil pan, the oil filter, etc, etc.

Best thing to do is crawl under and try to find the source.

alright i have some more info i brought it to a mechanic today and he told me its leaking from 3 different spots the valve cover, the head gasket and the oil filter he told me that im better off just to keep putting oil in it every once in a while and that most of the oil was leeking from the oil filter so he said he would just do an oil change for now what do you guys think?

Find a new mechanic. If indeed it is leaking at / near the filter, it could be the oil cooler o-ring... The oil cooler has an o-ring that tends to get brittle, crack, and leak, oftentimes a good amount of oil, so this may not be it. The oil cooler is where the filter screws onto. That part comes off and the o-ring is behind that... search, this has been covered quite a bit.

The valve cover is an easy fix.

So there's potential to easily fix 2 out of 3 supposed leaks.
