Mine front diff was leaking like that a few time. Its the Pinion seal.
I was eating them up for a while. My friend is a ford tech and he replaced two for me. He said i was getting a lot of sand in there and it was like sand paper on the back of the seal.
I don't think it will hurt anything as long as you keep fluid in it.
