The leak on the front around the belt tensioner is probably the top most balance shaft. You need to pull that rear belt cover off to verify.

The side of the oil pan can be a few things, like Schumi said the air oil separator o-rings will leave drips down the side of the pan. Other possibilities are seepage through the oil pan gasket and the upper balance shaft cover is leaking, possibly at the rear o-ring seal. Spray the area off well with brake cleaner, drive the car around and see when it comes back.
