We had young red-ear sliders several years ago and the white stuff you see may simply be that your turtle is growing, and shedding old skin. It floats as they swim and could be mistaken for some type of white algae or fungus, I suppose. If the turtle otherwise seems happy and healthy, I would assume that's what it is. Good luck!

A Red Eared Slider can only "procreate" (have young) with another Red Eared Slider but they have been known to "mate" (have sex) with Yellow Belly Sliders.
