Is the light colored stuff the yeast?

2,000ml flask. I'm guessing the lighter colored stuff on the top is all yeast and the bottom darker layer is all trub. Is this correct?

Yes, but I wouldn't worry about it. When you're ready, decant (pour off) the spent starter wort and pitch the slurry. Use a little of your brew wort to swirl around and get it all out.
