So, I have this salt creep coming from my bottom band, is this indicative of a leak?

More like a spill, I have that on most of my tanks. Water drops run down glass and for salt creep at bottom.

Have only had water in it for 4 days, wiped it off last night, back this morning. Could it be from the previous owner?

It could still be water that was between the plastic and the tank from when you washed it. When it dries in there, the salt creep climbs up. Try wiping it down several times with a very damp cloth to try to get what salt you can to wash out. Hopefully that is all it was.

I would think if it is a leak it would be wet. Since it is dry i would call it a spill.

Well, the salt itself is damp.

Because salt draws humidity out of the air. Leave your salt bucket open and it will harden as it draws moisture into it

Makes sense.
