Unhappy GT v6, check gearbox oil level

I noticed some fluid leaking down the gearbox from above, where do I check the gearbox oil level, is it that small plastic dipstick sticking out just behind the battery? It could also be the slave cylinder leaking but I want to check the gearbox oil because the dipstick was nice and clean and now all oiled up. Is this where you measure the gearbox oil level?? I read somewhere else on here that the level is checked by a screw underneath?

the level is only checked by the dipstick. No where else.

Thanks. And refilling? Also through this small dipstick hole with a pipe?

Yes harder than it sounds.

I used the smallest funnel I could find, then made sure my gearbox oil had the long tube type neck, then rammed one into the other then stuck it in the hole.
