Welcome to Just Answer, my name is ***** ***** I will do my best to help you with your issue. If my initial response doesn’t answer your question then let me know and we can continue our conversation.

You have the type of furnace that is so efficient that the water vapor in the exhaust condenses before it leaves the furnace. That condensate has to drain off. It's possible the drain is clogged but given where the water is showing up you probbaly have a leak in the heat exchanger. This is something you should have a pro check out.
