House has 2 Slabs in It

I Just bought another House and I was ripping up the Carpet and Found that the Concrete Slab was Very rough and that the wall plates where in the concrete so Hammered out part of the slab and found that the slab was only 1.5 inch thick and then Polly and then I found another Slab - I hammered in that one and found it was 4" Thick - I assume That the owner before me was having moisture problems in the basment. Should I remove this slab. There is little Water droplets under the polly - what should I do? Looks Like this slab was poured all around the walls?

Ev, Welcome to the Forum
Are you referring to a below grade concrete slab in the basement?
You may have a legal issue here.

What is your location?
