I would have your dealer check it out while still under warranty.
Unfortunately Polaris QC has been less than stellar lately playing the catch up to production demands game.

Which diff? Front or rear?

Both use an O-ring type drain plug. Often way overtightened...the O-ring gets damaged and it leaks a bit.

Front takes 8.5 oz of Polaris Demand Drive lube. Transmission/Diff takes 44 oz of Polaris ACL fluid.

So you could take some time to inspect for location of leak. Then if it's the drain plug. Drain the fluid into a clean container. Inspect/replace the O-ring, and then
pour the fluid back into the Diff or Trans/Diff.

When I reassembled a RZR 800 engine I used the Permatex Ultra Grey RTV. Same thing Polaris and Harley-Davidson use on cases.
Bead stays nice an firm while putting the halves together.

If it's at leak at the case joint...that's a warranty issue.

Isn't that always the way it goes?

It's like my ol' pappy used to say, "I know when my truck is out of oil. It stops leaking"
