I assume you are talking about below grade concrete blocks? If so, I would guess that it is dirty water. What does it smell/feel like? Is this at cracks, or all over the wall? Any pics? j

Your walls are not cement. They are probably be poured concrete or concrete block (hollow or reinforced).

A picture would do wonders to provide and sensible, realistic opinion.
