    Probably just the seal. Easy to replace.
    Make a mark on the nut and the yoke. Count the number of threads exposed. Then remove the nut. You may need to get bearing or gear puller to remove the yoke. Once this is off, pop the seal out. Replace it with the new one. MAke sure you put some grease on the rubber part. Tap it in fluxh with the outter suface of the housing. Put the yoke back on, tighten down the nut till the same number of threads are showing and the mark on the nut and the yoke match up. Re-install driveshaft, then you are done.
