My guess is it's just yeast. No worries.

Yeah, we call then "Yeast rafts" what they are are little colonies of yeast that get buoyed up from the trub at the bottom of the fermenter or secondary by co2 gass rising to the surface...then they sit their and some start fizzing a little...

It's common, actually!

I recently had two flies get in the cooled wort. Then, I had little floaties like you mention in the fermenter. So, I freaked, thinking "INFECTION"!

Batch is kegged now and tastes fine.
