seeds Germinated Seed Root Mould


I have been using the paper towel zip lock bag method to germinated Carolina Reaper seeds, 2 of them took a few days longer to germinate, but it looks like theres a white mould on the root. Was it stupid of me to plant this in a cup (double cup method) which has a soilless peat and vermiculite mix. I planted one of the germinated seeds a few days earlier in the same cup, now im worried i might have ruined that if i planted with mould.

Mold? ...or root hairs?
Like this? Because that is perfectly ok...
