My kombucha SCOBY has white spots on its surface... are they mold?

Hi, my kombucha SCOBY has white uneven colour spread on the top surface. Are they mold? They smell fine, but I am not sure if it's safe. It's been left for few weeks in the tea, in the glass bottle, and it was my first blew.  I boiled water for 15 min to make this batch and followed instruction to keep everything washed etc, just as how I do with milk kefir and water kefir.  The SCOBY I received from friend had yellowish even colour on its surface, so I am not sure if I had done right.....Can someone plz shed a light on it?  thank you.

How to brew tea for Kombucha?

I have the materials to make it but have never done it before. Can someone walk me through how to make 2 gallons of  tea and apply the scoby after the tea is room temperature. I have general knowledge but need confidence to do it with out a hitch.
