it's perfectly fine. it's a fermentation ring. the beer ferments and leaves a ring where it was.

Probably just krausen residue. If it doesn't smell bad or taste bad it is probably good.

Well, it smells good and I just tasted it. Still really sweet.

Well if its are on the glass, and not in the cider, do I need to roll the carboy around to get it off the side? Sorry, first cider.

I would just leave it where it's at, there's plenty of yeasties in the cider to finish the job.
