Don't do anything until we get a look at the picture. You may be surprised to know how many times this thing has shown up, and quite often it's simply yeast resting on top.

Also, just because it's infected, doesn't mean it won't be a great tasting beer, at least in the short term.

sounds like a yeast infection. Really don't want to see a picture, but Monistat works well. You did say you have an infection, right?
