Not good to hear. Hopefully it will just be something minor. Mine had a right side oil leak a few months back and it was just loose bolts on the lower right side cover. Snugged them all up with about a 1/4 turn and no more leak.

Yeah, I would rather have had a dead battery.

Another vote for engine cover bolts.  Still let us know.

Yet another vote for loose bolts.  Mine did exactly the same thing.  Dealer replaced the gasket as a precaution but the real culprit was loose bolts.

+1 on the right side engine bolts need tightening, happened to me so an easy fix; here is hoping.

Later
