Default Thoughts on Basement Photos Wanted ~ 1st time homebuyer

Hi all~ My husband and I are looking at a home that we are otherwise very taken with except for a suspicion of significant water problems (and a misrepresentation thereof) in the basement. The sellers acknowledge "dampness" but no accumulation or damage. We will have a home inspector come out, but I would appreciate any input I can get.

I am looking for any professional opinions on the photos I have of the floor. Thanks for any help you can give me.

Please view the below link for photos.

The pictures reveal evidence of water/vapor penetration but it doesn't tell the story. It is possible there was a pipe burst or a hot water tank rupture? Let's see what the inspector says.
