I would give it a slight turn to see if it's loose to tighten it down on the block but don't overdo it. If it's still leaking you might have a bad o ring between the compression fitting and block which can be replaced. It would need to have the loop drained to do so.

A new o-ring might help especially if it's an older fitting. I bought a 50 pack of o-rings recently for super cheap and every time i change fittings I change their o-rings also.

Looks like that is a piece of the threaded block or a section of oring that got sliced, I would personally replace it especially if it's very flat from extended use. I personally replace all the orings in the fittings every 3 years or so.

 

Those bitspower ones are good I've used those before.
