That's mushroom mycelium in the center of the plate and the other plates too have mushroom mycelium on them. It's hard to say weather or not you'll have a contaminate on those plates with the white growth. Usually you'll start to see a mold growing on the mushroom mycelium after the plates fill up if there contaminated. I'd make a transfer in a gloovebox to a few new plates of agar from a plate with no visible molds.

What species are you trying to grow?

You'll want to at least build a glovebox. Swipe the spores in the exact center of the plate, then make a transfer within a day or two of seeing ANYTHING. If you see different looking growths on the same plate, transfer each one to a new plate. Later, the molds will be on one plate and your healthy mycelium on another. If you leave them all on the same plate, the sporulating molds contaminate the mushroom mycelium.
