Default Leaky out

Checked on the keezer this morning, as I do every morning to make sure things look good. As soon as I opened the keezer lid I smelled this beautiful but gut-wrenching smell. My pale ale had leaked out the liquid out and filled the keezer with about an inch of deliciousness. Luckily the keg was about to be killed off, but now I have a few questions.

I looked at the liquid out on the keg, the gasket appeared to be seeped in a little and was blowing out bubbles. What could cause this?

I know the keg was pretty low, only 4-5 beers left in it, I had maintained a constant pressure of 10 psi. With the keg being so low, was this a bad amount of pressure to continue to push?
