Default Racked beer to secondary too soon

I have a 5 gal batch of Christmas ale that fermented through the airlock a few days ago. It's been about a week since brew day so I racked it into the secondary. There was hardly any yeast at the bottom of the bucket and still a thin layer of krausen on top. Do you think this could hurt the beer? Gravity is right on for my final gravity

I would test the Gravity again for the next few days and see if maybe it is still fermenting and the yeast is still in solution. An extra few days in the ferm bucket will not hurt it a bit, and if it is still fermenting you just avoided christmas Bottle Bombs.
