Something growing in my Apple Cider Vinegar?

Hey all! I started using diluted organic ACV with the mother in it as a toner (1 part ACV: 4 parts water) and it has helped reduce redness and appears to have lessened the intensity of breakouts. However, I noticed the other day after about a week of using it that these white, kind of fibrous tendrils started to appear and float around the liquid. I'm not sure what it is, but I think it's some kind of organism that started growing alongside the culture that already exists. Or maybe it's just the original culture that's growing a lot? 

Anyway, my main question is: is it still safe to use on my skin? Should I dump the little bit I made and make a new diluted solution of ACV?
