small oil leak?

I was at work one day and noticed some oil on some of the hoses on the lower left side of the bike. got home, took the lower fairings off and it was caked up with road grime, mixed with oil. i do think i found the main reason for the oil leak, a tiny crack in the engine crank case cover. but when i was cleaning up under the bike while it was on stands, i noticed something funny, it looks like theres a small chip in the block on the back side of where one of the bolts for the crank case cover goes through. would this also be a point where oil could be leaking from? might not be the best description but i got a picture of both.

Its probably just the crack, that's not a chip that's how it is made.

Its green and it says Kawasaki ninja zx10r on it!
