Garage leaking into basement


please offer advice on how to fix. Currently, basement is unfinished and I plan to finish (at least this area in question) by this Spring. Went down this am and noticed this problem. As far as I can tell, its coming from the joints of the concrete pads in the garage. The snow (in central Ohio) that has been carried in on my car tires, has melted and is leaking down the wall into this part of the basement. Do I caulk this area in the garage? Do I drylok this part of the wall? Both? The current temp in the basement is @59 deg F with a RH @ 30% - at least according to my Oreg. Sce. Hygrometer. Any ideas of what to do to eliminate this happening in the future as best as possible would be great.
