Default does this starter look ok? quick!

Ok I made a 1k ml starter like Wednesday and then did a 2nd step starter ontop of it in a bigger vessels left it in the fridge over night and now it looks like this. Has just a couple bunches of weird bubbles on top. Is this just krausen or is it infected? I was religious with sanitation using star san.

You are good to go. I've had that happen once to me after putting in the fridge, some of the krausen didn't drop after it was cooled. Sounds like it smells ok I would use it.
