Default Is this a sign of contamination?

Hi guys I was just transfering my APA that I mashed last saturday to secondary and the yeast looked really odd to me... It stoped fermenting on wednesday... And I just put it in the fridge at about 5 celsius. It fermented in a range of 18-21 in two buckets... Help pleaseee... Thanks...

Looks fine. How's it smell? How'd your APA sample taste?

Looks like a mix of proteins and yeast. All of the infections I've seen form a layer on top of the beer. Did it look like something was on top?
