Am I just paranoid??

So it started as a small leak between the tranny and engine. There was also a small leak next to my spin on filter this little aluminum tab thing (not sure what its for). Leak stopped fluid level is perfect but I can smell transmission fluid when I step out of the truck... I just did a fluid exchange for synthetic (wyanns) fluid but not sure if it has anything to do with it. Am I about to blow something up???

Well I have 142k on it now, and the font main seal was my first thought but I'm worried about the pump because of the second leak next to the spin on filter. It did top leaking but I can smell Tranny fluid which also seems odd considering my temp never goes above 150* even after Iget on it. I use 4 wheel drive to get to my house and often shut her down in 4 wheel drive is that bad for these diesels?
