Default Uh oh... Spots in Secondary??

So I hope this isn't a bad sign... my first batch is in secondary, and I noticed some gray circular spots on the surface of the beer. They're definitely not growing or fuzzy or anything so I'm not too worried, but I thought it would be best to ask anyway.

That's normal, when you rack you'll end up getting a little CO2 released from stirring up the yeast. RDWHAHB.

Sometimes you'll see really funky looking stuff on the top of your beer. Unless it is getting fuzzy or looks distinctly of mold (which is very challenging for many common molds to establish given the alcohol and pH range of the beer) then don't give it a second thought.
