No, more than likely, it is just some leakage past the clutch push rod seal that you are seeing. Oil will not come spilling out when you remove the cover.

Depending on your year/model, it's 3-4 bolts to remove the seal cover plate, pull out the seal, press in new one. Not hard really at all. You may need move the chain and front sprocket depending on the model. Bikes with 3 bolts may clear the chain, 4 bolts the plate is behind the sprocket.

Might need a new valve cover gasket. Should cost ~$40 if my memory serves correct.
Or the bolts aren't torqued down correctly.

No, it's not.

Clean the entire area well. Give it a good wash and dry. Run the bike, check for specific location of leak source. Show us a pic, help us help you.
