Default Is this normal? (Pic)

I made 3 batches of different beer 2 weeks ago, They did sit a little longer in the primary and there was very little foam on the top of all 3. On the Red Ale there is this white stuff on the top, the pic is not too clear but it doesn't look like mold, more like yeast or something, I have just never seen this before..is the beer still good? and what is it?

Probably just little bubbles of C02, doesnt look like anything to worry about to me.

see if it grows over the next couple days. If it doesn't grow bigger it's probably not mold

That stuff happened to me once - I worried and fretted about it and ended up drinking it as I really had few options.

I had to throw all the beer out. It ruined my fermenter, so I had to throw that out. My brother tasted the hydrometer sample and spent 3 weeks in the hospital from intestinal bacterial infection and I had bottle bombs.

Seriously it looks like bubbles to me, nothing to worry about.
