    Going by only those photos provided, I would say it's just dust. Fungus/Mould would typically look more like spiderwebs.

    No problems. How does the rear element look? From my knowledge, it's usually the rear that would have a greater affect on the quality of your images.

    Agree that it's probably dust. Fungus looks like this:
