Default Contamination?

I brewed a golden ale had some wheat malt in it it's been in my secondary for about 3 weeks now. There some stuff floating on the top looks like sedement just little particles of something not a foam or anything haven't noticed this in previous batches can it be infected? It kind of looks like trub or the small bits of grain you get at the bottom of the brew pot.


Primary 1: Imperial Stout
Primary 2: Golden Ale
Keg 1: Nothing
Keg 2: Nothing

I just had an ale that had that very thing, and it was fine. No need to worry until you taste it.

I plan on living forever. So far, so good! - unknown.
