Should I worry about this leak?

My car has been in storage for a over a month, it's bellow freezing temps here. Before storing the car I power washed it.

Today I had to take the car out of the garage and after turning it on and letting it run for a few minutes, a very dark liquid started leaking out from the exhaust (Not from the the tip). Initially I thought it was oil but after closer inspection it's just really dirty water, or water mixed with dark dust.

The car is 100% stock and is only about 7 months old.

Is this something I should be worried about or is it normal?

It is the soot from the exhaust. Mine does it as well.

That's good to know!

How about the area where this is leaking from, is it normal for that area to not be sealed? I can't tell if there is a hole there or what is causing it.

Same on mine, there are little holes for the condensation drains. It's normal, my garage floor looks the same.

Yep as stated there are two small holes in the muffler case and from time to time there will be black, sooty water draining out. Makes a nice mess on the garage floor. Totally normal. My Gen 5 Camaro did it too.
