It depends on the size and kind of contamination. Try scooping out the infected section with a sterile spoon or knife and pouring some salt in it.
Quote: I was discussing it with a friend here, I told him I prefer to cook the compost a week before the inoculation, so I can see if some contam occured.
He told me that it would be better inoculate as soon as possible, so if there were a contam the myc will have the same chance...
"Cook" should mean pasteurize. You should follow the process (pasteurization) as it is described. I would use the compost asap, if you don't do it, other microorganism will start growing and will jeopardize any future mycelium growth.
