Bottom of shower wall may be leaking between it and floor cap?

The walls of our corner shower come down to the floor of the shower. There is a floor cap lip about 5" higher than the floor where the walls actually come down to. The bottom of the walls seem to be loose and there is a gap at the bottom of the walls where I am concerned that humidity and moisture could seep up behind the walls of the shower. The water cannot leak past the floor cap because there is a lip, it would have to go uphill, up and over, but humidity from showering could get past it?

Also, when pushing against the shower walls it feels like they are not glued or attached to the wall behind. There is a tacky, sticky feeling when you push against the shower walls, (just a very tiny distance). It feels like they want to stick to the wall behind but the adhesive isn't strong enough, like the shower walls at one time maybe stuck to the wall behind?

What I want to do is use some clear silicone caulk, (something like GE 100% Silicone, mold free), along the bottom of the shower wall, between the bottom of the wall and the floor cap to prevent moisture from seeping up behind the wall and causing mold or mildew.

Good idea? Any other tips?
