I wouldn't worry about it Stuart. My experience has been that the more you drive them the less they leak. When they sit the seals dry out and shrink a bit, when you run the car the oil lubricates the seals and they swell back up. When I got my car the dealer disclosed that the cam seals leaked and would leave a spot about the size of a silver dollar on the floor ovar a week's time. He even gave me a new set of cam seals. The car had been sitting in his showroom for 6 months. After about 2 weeks of driving it the leaks stopped.
So just keep checking the oil, make sure it is full and drive the car. You could spend thousands of dollars trying to find and fix this little leak or you could just buy another quart of oil.
