Default A few fruit questions

I have a pale ale that I accidentally made 6.4 gal of instead of 5.5. I wanted to experiment with fruit...
5 days after pitching US-05, I cut up a grapefruit, orange, and mango, put in the oven for 15 min at 180 F to sanitize, and put the pieces at the bottom of a 3 gal carboy.
I then racked 1.6 gal of the still fermenting beer onto the fruit, sealed with airlock, and now it has been sitting for 12 days.
Questions:
1.
I have noticed some small white dots on top of some of the fruit, hoping they are just small yeast colonies?
2.
Should I be ok to bottle now? I need the 3 gal carboy for a brew on Friday, but I could always rack off the fruit to 2 one gal jugs...
This is my first time using fruit so any suggestions are appreciated. Thanks!
