where the glass pane meets the plastic frame there is a gap and it looks like the "caulking?" has shrunk.
do we just clean the muck out and use bathroom/ kitchen caulking to fill it up? it has been wet - condensation-so there is a wee bit of mold.
thanks all

It's a little hard to tell , but I think your first pic indicates that you're talking about the setting material . Either foam tape or adhesive that the glass seats on . Unless you are getting noticeable air leakage , it really isn't hurting anything. AND , if you try to aggressively dig it out , you can break the glass in a hurry !

You probably should frequently clean the entire window & sash with a bleach solution to kill the mold .

It would probably be better to leave as is . Unless you can get the mold & moisture OUT , you would probably be sealing it IN .

However
, if applying a small bead of silicone could , say , keep you out of divorce court , caulking would seem prudent !
