So my story is that my rear output shaft seal is leaking and i can't get to fixing it until Tuesday. I bought this truck a couple weeks ago so i assume its been leaking for a little bit. Its not buckets of oil on the ground but a few drops when i park after driving. SO is it okay to drive on short trips until Tuesday?

It's probably ok to drive it normally until Tuesday. I see vehicles all the time that have trans seals and pinion seals pissing fluid that don't blow up.

Just make sure you top off your fluid after you replace the seal.
