This sounds like your heater core is leaking. The heater core is a coil where heated anti-freeze flows through-- your heater fan blows over this coil and blows heat inside the car. The musty odor is most likely anti-freeze fumes which are very dangerous to breath in. I suggest fixing this problem ASAP.
