changed the rear diff oil on the truck couple of days ago.looks like the new gasket wasn't seated or torqued correctly is what I'm guessing. Any tips to fix it are well welcomed.

Have you witnessed it drip, or have seen any drips on the floor? If not, are you sure it's not just oil from when you changed it? Otherwise, just do what J said^.

Hate to be a wet blanket here....
It is possible that you seated the gasket incorrectly. It looks like there are several ways for it to go on, but I think only one lines it up perfectly. You may have to double check it.
The good news is, if you have a big, clean, dry pan, you can capture and reuse the lube.
