I have two masonry related question. One is about a basement small window concrete base/surrounding that seem have been worn out in function of erosion possibly caused by water falling from the above gutter system.

Another issue is related to small cracks and failures on my external brick walls, as shown in the following pic:
Could anyone recommend how to approach repairing the basement window concrete surrounding. And how much of a problem are the small cracks and failures on my external brick walls?
