Help! My new house seems to have marble in it that stains. What can I do?

Just bought a great house. The previous owner had fixed it up and flipped it. And he seemed to like marble. There are marble tiles (1' square) in the entryway and in the kitchen that stain when touched by water. The staining goes away once they're dry but WTF?
Might this not be marble?
Is there any way to seal this?
What if I spill red wine on the floor?(a distinct possibility where I'm concerned)
The stuff that's in the bathrooms doesn't have this problem, but it's quite noticeable in the entryway and inexplicably, on the kitchen floor.
