Turbo issues

A little Background:

Car has 96000 miles
Just bought in December
Had leakdown and compression done. It's where it needs to be.

Now my issues:

I am getting very little boost at all. Pick up seems to be no better than the Targa. On initial crank up liquid sprays out of the exhaust pipe. I believe it is oil, not sure. It is not a continual spray just a spurt then done.

As far as I can see from records the turbo has never been replaced.

Do you guys think this is just a leak somewhere or is the turbo just done?

Thanks so much.
