That's the spark plug weep hole.  If oil is coming out of it, the oil would have to be leaking into the spark plug recess first.  Like from a valve cover gasket.

It is normal for fluid to exit that hole....from riding or washing.

Makes sense, I lost compression from bike sitting,, poured cap of oil down plug, got compression back,,,, oil was probly sitting in that plug pocket.
