Don't dump it! Check the gravity and taste it! If it tastes good and is at the gravity you expect, bottle. DON'T DUMP IT.

Ok i will taste this afternoon and i looked again and it looks like a bunch of little bumbles are surrounding these little white spots, does that help in determining if it's yeast or mold? Yeast I used was Wyeast 1056

Okay, protip: You asked the exact same question in two separate forums. If you put it in one spot you wouldn't have a hard time getting straight answers.

Second, read advice given to you and taste it, transfer it to your bottling bucket, take a sample while you are doing it. If it's still at your FG, and tastes good, you are good to go. Don't forget to carb it.

That doesn't look like mold to me at all. It looks like typical yeast rafts.
