I agree, it doesn't look good. It's hard to make a conclusion, but it could be due to the substrate packed too tight or you're using a fine grade kind of verm. I can't really tell if it is contaminated but that kind of substrate promotes weak growth and contamination. Anyway, only time will tell but i wouldn't expect anything from that cake.
