If it leaks down the barrel with the trigger at rest, you have a leaky powertube o-ring.

If it leaks down the barrel with the trigger pulled, you have a leaky on/off (top) o-ring.

Hobbes is on the money with the diagnosis. Also make sure your parts are thoroughly oiled. Mags drink the stuff like coors light at a tailgate party

Outlast synthetic gun oil is really great, but any paintball gun oil will work. You can pick up powertube o-rings straight from AGD. If you're planning to keep the marker for a while, though, and if the o-rings haven't been changed recently, you should probably get a parts kit and fully rebuild the marker. If one o-ring is starting to go, chances are that some others are on the verge too. So just change them all. Then it will be good to go for many, many years.
