Default To rinse, or not to rinse

Built up a three gallon starter for a ten gallon Octoberfest. Used extra-light dme. After chilling it, I noticed a fair amount of darker matter that settled out first. Is this hot/cold break? Started with a fresh smack-pack. There is a fair amount of this material underneath the healthy looking yeast. Should I rinse the yeast to get rid of the darker matter or just pitch as is?
