Unscrew the white fitting on the red tube. It should be hand-tight. Tighten the black elbow one turn if you can (both sets of threads might tighten). If you can't, unscrew it, put some teflon tape on the threads, and re-install it to the original position.
If you take the fittings completely apart and apply the teflon tape, wind it in the direction such that as you screw the fitting back together it tends to wind the tape tighter, not unwind it.
As for direction, the old righty-tighty, lefty-loosey rule applies. I've marked up your image. If you turn in the direction of the red arrow
, you will be tightening BOTH fittings. If you turn in the direction of the blue arrow
, you will be loosening both sets of threads.
