Looks like krausen. Perfectly normal.

I've had krausens stay for three weeks, even when the gravity reading shows the beer is at terminal gravity.

Yeah, listen to Revvy. Sometimes krausen just sticks around a little. I've definitely had to rack around it a few times.

"Yeast infection" was my first though when I read this last night. Thanks for the humor...
