Bad silicone?

Hi there. I just bought a 56 gallon tank 3 days ago and noticed tonight these white areas along the edges. I can't tell if they're tiny bubbles or what. Is this a sealant problem? If so, how bad?

I hope this is the right forum since it's not technically an equipment issue, but it seemed the closest fit....

Thank you!

Hmmm, looks like there is def some moisture behind the silicone, can you return it? I wouldn't chance that in my apt..
I'm not really here... fell in the tank and my phone is just that smart
