    What is this and is it normal for it to drip?

    Hi all, I am new to this forum. I just wanted to see if anyone knows what this part is called. And is it normal for it to drip? There's no visible leak anywhere. And I believe the droplets go into the waste pipe. But something could be wrong if it's not meant to drip. Thanks in advance!
