Default Fully fermented question

My latest batch of beer has been in the secondary since Saturday, and today I noticed tiny whitish specks floating on top. Could this be an infection, or something else? Other than that, I can see that the beer is already much clearer than it was when I racked it to the secondary.

Thanks in advance.

I doubt it's infection- it could be little yeast specks or something like that. If the spots grow, and/or look fuzzy, though, that's a different story.
