I got my Taurus Back from the dealership (it had to get an oil change and coolant flush) Since putting in some NO-LEAK in the crank case, it fixed the leak. However, the Dealership still said it had "oil sweat" on the oil pan. What does "oil Sweat" mean and should I be watching for more oil leaks??

it means they are frustrated that they cant rape your wallet , clean the area carefully with a suitable de-greaser and check it a lot to see if you can actually see anything over a couple of weeks . Check the oil a lot as well... you will get a good idea about if it is actually dropping or not by such observation.
