the pics are kind of small so its hard to tell. but if your seeing what i think you are i had the same thing happen with an AG batch i got from a group brew at a local brewery. i thought it was just yeast floating at the top of the fermenter. what was funny is after a while it fell and there was the usual light brown yeast stuck to the inside of the carboy at the top of the water line in a nice wide ring. i just jostled the carboy and it fell to the bottom.

Looks like krausen. Leave it alone.
