White chunky urates?

Our new baby tortoise just pooped this out in addition to big green poops. Is the white clumps something we should be concerned about? Thank you!
Better out than in! Sometimes the substrate they hatch on is in their system. Just ensure you bath regulary so they take in water and have good light, heat, variety of fresh food and fresh water in the enclosure. Enjoy you new hatchling.
 
Just a tip.... I keep a weight log and weigh after a bath and before food on a Sunday. It is nice to see growth and you can spot if they are not growing to check all is OK.
