I have a basic model GE refrigerator with an ice maker.

The ice maker is currently turned off. But the water line is on.

Inside the refrigerator there are two square holes in the back about 1 inch x 1 inch.

Every 5 to 10 seconds a drip comes down. I put two glasses back there to catch the water and within a week it fills up half the glasses.

I can't figure what's wrong... can anybody point me in the right direction?

I thought it was because the refrigerator was not level...

** the model number [is] GTS18IBM BRWW **

So it's a top-freezer refrigerator. It's a good thing you posted the model number as "basic model GE refrigerator" is a pretty vague product description.

** Inside the refrigerator there are two square holes in the back about 1 inch x 1 inch. Every 5 to 10 seconds a drip comes down. I can't figure what's wrong. **

There are only 2 places water can come from on a refrigerator, an icemaker and/or water dispenser system (if so equipped) or defrost water.

** The ice maker is currently turned off. But the water line is on. **

Have you tried turning it off to see if it is the cause???

If that doesn't change anything, a defrost water drainage problem might be the cause. The following link about that might give you some ideas where to look into that possibility.

- My fridge is leaking water, what might the problem be?
