A wheel cylinder is part of the rear drum assembly. They tend to leak over time and need replacing. A rebuild kit comes with new seals and a spring. For the labor cost of rebuilding your better off getting new ones.

Rear wheel cylinders are not very expensive. It is a good idea to change them when doing a drum brake job. They probably are seeping fluid out now.
