***I am NOT an expert - this is just my opionion based on info gathered***

I personally do not think it looks like it is contaminated. However something that you should avoid doing on future grows is leaving uncolonized grains exposed. When you are mixing your spawn with your bulk sub, always leave some sub left over to add to the top once you have mixed the rest of it, to ensure that all the grains are covered.

If you are talking about the dark spots, I am assuming that you likely used coconut coir as your bulk sub, and if I am right, then I believe the dark spots to just be uncolonized coir.

If you are talking about the little white dots/spots. I think those could potentially be knots, which should end up turning into pins.

turned out to be mold which spread really quick after i isolated the box.

Not sure if it was the heat or the sub as both conditions were not normal. It was REALLY warm here (30c) and i used coir shreds instead of the usual coir peat. Don't think i'll be trying that again

Those bright white puffs in your picture are a good indicator of green mold, Trichoderma likely.

Wasn't the heat...it was your spawn.

When you increase the heat in a fruiting chamber you invite other things to grow beside mushrooms, like bacteria.

For cubes you really want to keep the temps between 20-22C.
