Question Small Leak, small problem?

In the basement I noticed on the main water line into the house at an elbow there is a bluish corrosion(?) and a very small wet spot on the floor beneath it from what looks like just a very few drops of water. Is this just a failure in the solder joint or does the elbow and a short piece of copper pipe need to be replaced?

C any of the above. It could be a failing solder joint or the fitting or pipe could be bad. Whatever the cause it should be taken care of as it will only get worse.
