Well you will have to determine why it is leaking. It is just a loose fitting? try tightening it up with a wrench Is there a crack? Is the pipe white PVC (plastic) or copper or even gray metal? If it is any of these you will need to cut it out and replace that section. You might want to consider hiring a plumber.
