Default Quick Question on Secondary Ferment

Hey all!... I put my first brew in the secondary on friday and i just checked it.. and it looks like its split up in 2 colors a dark brown on top and a more amber red on the bottom.. top being clear and bottom being murky ish. I was wondering if this was part of the clearing phase or did i do something wrong the creation? or is it normal ( which i am hoping )

thanks for your help!

Nope, it's normal. Even though the top looks like it's getting darker it really is getting clearer.

Basically, the light is not reflecting off of the yeast...since it's not there.
