Oil leaking

Pardon the ignorance. E92 M3, had "add one quart" message last week. Added one quart on Wednesday, by Friday noticed oil leaking all over garage floor. Learned here that inadequately tightened oil cap is common issue so re-tightened cap and washed out engine bay. First drive was today and after getting home from work noticed more leaking. Is it possible that there are pools of oil under the engine compartment that still need to work their way out? I'm starting to worry that there is an actual leak elsewhere. Information system said oil level was ok this morning. Thanks for the help.
