I looks like the fork seal. but most of the time the seal is still good and there is a piece of dirt stuck in the seal. pull down the dust seal and clean it out, use a baseball card or something like that to slide up the sealing surface to jar something loose.

Sounds like time for new seals and fresh oil to me. Youtube it. Its not too hard
