  The medium used is coco peat from south India. The fertilizer used is organic seaweed imported from South Africa. I want to know whether its an infestation or beneficial for my plant growth?

Identifying fungi reliably is a job for experts; there are too many of them, and many (most) look too similar. Identifying any given Little White Mushroom is a matter of studing exact structure of the gills and veil, the color (and, under a microscope, shape) of the spores, and other tiny details. If you're really interested, there are books on the subject -- and every one of them will warn you that even experts get fooled.
