It's been fermenting for just over 2 weeks. These spots look a little funky. The scoby isn't quite at the top, but it's just under the surface. Not sure if this is a new scoby forming, or mold on top like I get with saurkraut. Does anyone know?

It's probably new scoby growth since you say the surface is exposed.
