Unwanted silence at the beginning of an audio file

I’m quite a newbie to Audacity and I’m having an issue with some audio files I’m trying to modify. After selecting the part of the recording that I need and clicking on “trim audio outside selection”, I try to export to a Wav format (16000 Hz, 32-bit float).

Could someone help me with that?
