Burning too much fuel. That's kind of relative though. How long did it take to make that spot?

Water dripping from the tail pipe is a byproduct of the catalytic converter doing its job. Most cars have a small drain hole at the bottom rear of the muffler to reduce the chances of rusting the tail pipe.
