Oil Usage & leak

I've got a small oil leak on my 145 1.6 boxer,from the LHD head. I change the oil in my 145 every 6500 - 8000 miles using Fully synethic 10w40 Castrol GTX Magnatec.

Is this oil too thin causing the leak..it more a seeping than a leak, the manual says to use semi synethic of the same grade,

Is there any qucik way to stop the leak?
I was thinking of trying to turn the head bolt's a turn anticlockwise & then a turn clockwise. Then realised Teh bolt's could be strecth bolt's & I did'nt know which order to tighten them up.

Any idea's [img]smilies/confused.gif[/img]
