Well if you can get under the car with it running you can probably see where it's leaking from.

When I was changing my oil once the old from the old filter stuck on the car and I didn't catch it. After I installed the new filter it would leak pretty good. Doubt that's your issue but maybe

Well oil is thinner when it is warm so only leaking when car is warm is very possible. Could put it up on jack stands and let it run

It seems like its just one or two tiny drops but just knowing is driving me crazy. Ill have to put it on the car lift later is there some type of dye I can use to trace it?

Yeah you can use some dye stuff that reacts to UV Light but you will probably be able to see where it's leaking from after a drive

If it is the speed sensor os it common to do that and if so can I take it off or will a bunch of tranny fluid spill out?

It shouldn't leak out that much oil if it's below the fill plug.
