Transmission oil leak

So, recently I've had to remove my CV axles a couple more than enough times due to some work i had done to the car.
When i test drove it, i noticed a high pitch sound comming from the drivers side as I drove.
I didnt think anything of it.
Until
I saw a puddle forming up under my car near the wheel.
I was thinking it was motor oil, but then I saw the color and realized it was transmission.
I drive a 3.8l manual transmission
I assume it's the seal that goes between the axle and the transmission.
How hard is it to replace?
Is it just take off and put on a new one?
Please let me know, I'm having to add oil to the car and transmission oil isnt cheap lol.

pcfreak4 has a spectacular aura about
You most likely damaged an axle seal that now needs replaced, takes special tools to remove and set one

I just placed a pic there, and hammered and tapped it out and made sure to bend the metal of the seal and not the metal on the trans. Been driving it for 6k miles and not a drop of trans fluid. No special tools needed. You can see where I bent and picked at the old seal. Very easy to do. Took me maybe about 30 minutes for the driver side and 50 for the passenger side.

I see I see, I ended up buying a seal driver and it still took me more than 30 minutes.
But I've been driving around and so far so good in my exchange.
Still getting a high pitch noise though. So I do wonder what that could be then.
