Default white stuff on side of carboy

after a week and a half of fermenting in the primary fermenter, a white residue has begun building on the ripples of the carboy. About one or two inches above the trub. This is the first time I have used a lager yeast so I am not sure whether to think it is a bacteria related issue.

Has anyone ever heard of something like that.

Primary: None
Secondary: none
Bottles: English ale (Second triale)
Continental Light Kit
English Ale (First triale)
On Deck: looking for a "white ale" recipe

Cold break maybe or just tiny air bubbles.. I have only done 1 lager so far and had the same thing.

Might even be yeast that's settling out.
