fork seals / bent forks?

It looks like my right fork seal is leaking. I haven't hit anything major while riding, but...

I loaded it on a Uhaul for the trip from Oregon to Colorado and drove over some bumpy road. I tied my Wee down with all ten ratchet straps I own, but I did tie down the front forks just above the seals. Is it possible I just put pressure on the seal or maybe did real damage to the forks? Ride is the same as before my trip, my front suspension doesn't feel blown but there was enough oil on my wheel well after returning to the bike after a week to puddle in the rim. Seems like a slow leak because I haven't found any substantial oil seepage since regular riding this past four days (maybe it all ran out already?)

Suggestions? TIA
