So should I add more yeast at this point?

*EDIT*
OMG!!! I just checked on it and I have bubbles! it's like one every three minutes but they're there. I'm surprised after opening the fermenter to take the pic it started bubbling so soon. Maybe moving the fermenter out of the pantry to take the pic jump started the yeast.

It looks like you've already fermented. That ring around the edges is from where the krausten fell. I'd bet your lid doesn't fit completely airtight, so the CO2 is escaping from elsewhere.

So, congradualations, YOU HAVE BEER!. Give it another few days in the primary (prolly 3 - 5), take a gravity reading, and if you've hit your target, rack to secondary for two weeks. Since you have SOME bubbles, it's not completely done fermenting (maybe you sealed it up better this last time), so don't be in a rush to rack it quite yet.

It was very foamy when I poured it into the fermenter.

Trust me, that's krausten (or however the hell you spell it). Did you take an OG reading? If so, take another reading now if you don't believe me - my friend, that is fermented BEER staring back up at you. Not FINISHED beer, but BEER nonetheless.

I'm with the_bird. Take a gravity reading (making sure to sanitize whatever you dip into the beer) and see what it says.
