I just purchased a home and the shower in the basement has a distinct smell that I have traced to this weird disgusting slimy type substance that was put into the track beneath the shower door.

My first instinct is to scrape this all out and replace it with some sort of silicone.

Could someone please help me? Here are a couple of photos
