Looks like krausen. Perfectly normal.

I've had krausens stay for three weeks, even when the gravity reading shows the beer is at terminal gravity.

I racked my porter out from under the krausen, No problem at all.

"Yeast infection" was my first though when I read this last night. Thanks for the humor...
