Maybe... But it doesn't mean that it's infected. Only time will tell that. I've seen some pretty disgusting looking krausen that had me wondering also, but in the end, the beer tasted fine.

Here's a good thread on the addition of honey to your fermenter, with some decent opinions on whether or not to heat it or not prior to adding.
