Discolored grout sides of toilet

Does this mean there is a leak or wax ring compromised? I've.monitored it for months and the discoloration never stems out any further than what you see. Thanks for any advice.

Remove the toilet and find out.
Changing the wax ring is about $5.00 and a 1/2 hour job, want to guess what having to redo the floor cost?

Use a good no-seep wax ring when you replace it,#1 normally works for most cases unless the flange is low.
