Leaky Water Heater?

I don't think it's either of those scenarios; it's sitting on a cold concrete floor and is probably causing some condensation. I see the bottoms of these housings rusted out all the time from sitting on cold concrete but have never seen one rusted out or stained where they place one of those two-inch-thick styrofoam insulating pads.

Did you pull the covers off the elements to see if one was leaking? Sometimes the threaded bosses where the elements are screwed in are oozing water.
