Sand-like material coming from walls around water heater

So Around my water tank and water heater in the laundry room, a sand like material that's grey in colour started appearing around the base of the water tank. It seems like it's coming from out of the wall since the bottom part of the wall is open. I'm not sure what I should do about this or how to explain what is happening here. Any suggestions or thoughts?

The picture links do not work. There is a way to install pictures, but I cannot help you with that. Try sending a message to a moderator.
