Yeah that's the oil pan alright. It's that bolt on the passengers side. Just make sure you have something there to catch the oil. And lots of rags haha. And get the exact size of the bolt. I used to use a bigger one out laziness and ended up stripping it. It was NOT fun to get it out

Try some channel locks. Try not to mess it up even more lol. Worst case you can get special sockets to yank it right out!
