Default Is a yellow colour normal?

I am fermenting store bought apple juice and so far it smells great, however a few days ago it turned yellow.
I'm wondering am I right to be panicking or is this normal.

It has now been fermenting a week and four days. Will this clear up and return to a brown colour?

My ciders are usually a straw color. Sort of a deep golden yellow. If you started with a brown color then it might be the yeast in solution causing the color change. I wouldn't panic at all.

Okay, I'll let it sit and see how it turns out.
Thanks for the reply by the way

Mine looks nothing like that, when I say yellow I mean yellow, must be from the yeast as others pointed out.

Looks damn nice btw.

I'm just wondering, my cider has been going for 2 weeks now, if I let it go for another 2 should that be sufficient for the yeast to drop out?
