Confused on wiring set up

I have a single light that I want to replace with a simple track light from Home Depot in the unfinished space of my basement. I have removed the ceiling light to find I have 2 black, 2 white and 1 ground wire. The light fixture has 1 black and 1 white and ground. Is this a switch loop? How do I hook up the wires to get the light to work? Thanks for the help.

Post a picture of current wiring. Can't see what you see.

What wires were previously connected to the fixture? The track would connect the same way.
