seriously, your beer looks fine...just gunk from fermenting.. ALTHOUGH I do see one spot that looks white to me...may just be flash or something though.

I don't think so, but then I'm not an expert.

The collapsed yeast foam in my carboy looks almost identical to your picture.

Looks like yeast rafts to me. But let your other senses be the judge- as long as it smells and tastes okay, no worries!
