It's bad, and you will probably see just how bad it is by the time you read my reply. Better just toss them or try to save what you can while you still have a chance. Pink fuzz grows very fast!!!!!!

Time will tell. If it spreads, then probably it's contamination. Not much you can do.

is the pink fuzz you are seeing quite obviously a different mold growing, because i looked at some of my colonising jars tonight, and they are at least 80% colonized now, but there are areas on the cake that look like it just might be a thin area of mycelium, and it just looks sort of pinkish because i'm seeing substrate through areas of mycelium. how can i be sure its mold and not just mycelium thats a little thin?

Yeah, general rule of thumb is, if it spreads, it's a contam. I've had tiny spots inside jars of many colors, blue, yellow, brown, orange. Some colors like yellow are normal and are mycacelium "piss" and others are just a miscolored piece of substrate, or rust from the metal lids. HOWEVER, if it's any color besides white, blue, orange or yellow and it starts to spread, it is almost certain that it is a contaminant, and the jar should be pitched before it gets noxious. Pink fuzz definiteally sounds bad. If it spreads anymore, then I would pitch it.
