Default Infected yeast starter ? (image)

Hey guys, last night i made a yeast starter that i was gonna use tonight but i couldnt brew so it'll have to wait till tomorrow, but if you look at this image, is that normal ?

Its wyeast 1318 i think, London Ale 3 (harvested)

When i racked the beer to bottles that i originally used the yeast for, it had the same kind of layer ontop, but the beer is fine, drinking it right now.

I've never used liquid yeast before so not sure if its normal or not :/

Looks normal to me. That's a mini krausen. Good sign! You have a healthy yeast starter!

Looks like krausen to me. Perfectly normal I'd say

It would take weeks for an infection to stand that proud

Perfectly normal. No way you'd have visible infection to that degree in a day. Especially not in a starter with the yeast choking everything else out.
