Default Leaking Well valve??

This section of plumbing hardware is dripping.
This is part of a well water assembly. It is threaded on the inside.

Is it a bleed valve?

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks, Josh

Well! They may have degrees, but that is not an indicator of common sense or right thinking...M. Larson circa 9-27-2018.

Roy's right, pics not loading or "blowing up" for some reason? Anyway, looks like a leaky pressure relief valve to me...very common.

The pictures have "Ink" annotations, that is probably why they cannot load.
Here are the originals.
