I think its infected...HELP!!!

Hey, I left the beer in a secondary fermenter for about a month. Was in primary for 3 weeks. I opened it up to bottle and I see this.

Is that what infected beer looks like?

Right now I am at 19C, which is 66F. I have about 6 liters of free headspace in the fermenter. The fermenter is new so there should not be a bad seal.
