I have an ExMark TTHP 17 Kawi that has some kind of an oil leak. It's leaking at the end of the pipe leading into the muffler. Any idea what it could be? Thanks!

That could be from overfilling the engine with oil, worn or busted
piston ring, valve guide worn or cracked, or a leak from somewhere
else.

Who knows, is it running low on oil?
If not, keep an eye on it and the oil level but don't worry about it too much.

By the way...
I am assuming that's a Kawasaki, and you'll want to read the manual because I'm not 100% sure...
But on more than a few of these the PROPER way to check the oil is with the dipstick seated but NOT turned in!
Just set it down, do NOT twist it on, otherwise you get a false reading.
Again, read the manual on how to check it to be sure.

It looks like water got in the muffler and mixed with the soot in the muffler!

Thats what happened to mine.

does it feel like oil??
