Default Problem with glow plug

As i was running my engine and came in for a temp check I noticed fuel coming out from around the glow plug. Is this correct to assume I just had it extremley rich and the glow plug not tighten down all the way down. Cause I did retighten plug and lean the motor a lil bit and didnt notice any more issues.

turbo or std? if std the crush washer could be bad and if turbo the taper might be wrong did you change plug makers?

I saw that happen a couple times on Vspecs. usually just tghten the plug up & it went away. the only thing we could think of was it just wasn't got tight when installed after changing it or the plug loosed up a little due to the difference in the metals & the heat expansion & contraction. just kinda what we had found & we was using OS plugs.
