Is this poop or a parasite?

Ive had my platy for 2 weeks now and hes “pooped?” white since i got him. Is it just his poop and is this okay? I dont want him making everyone else sick if its not okay. I havent seen the other platy poop and the mollies are pooping brown. I netted the poop out and its in old tank water not moving i feel like a parasite would swim right?
