Default Infection in Krausen (links to pics)

So last night I made a brown ale, checked on it early this morning and the Krausen was just starting to form, however it looked liked there was a bunching of yeast in part of the Krausen. Got back this afternoon and there seems to be this brown gunk in the Krausen as it rises. Here is a link to the pics http://www.flickr.com/photos/42486286@N00/. Is this an infection.

Looks like a perfectly fine kraeusen to me. The brown gunk is normal.

doesn't look like an infection to me, looks pretty normal. i've had the same stuff in mine before too. i think its just some of the protiens from the grains raising with the yeast.
