Grout cracking next to bath/shower


We had our house built 2 years ago and in one of the bathrooms the grout is cracking next to the shower/tub but not anywhere else. Did it not get sealed correctly? Do I need to regrout this area? Thanks!

using a dremel tool, clean out some grout and the apply a bead of 'translucent' silicone caulking.
NOT CLEAR caulking. Dow Corning 786 (I think) is a 'translucent caulk that works very well.
