All white bugs could be any number of things. Mite, springtails, phorid fly maggots... some things are harmless, others are not. What temperature do you have it at?
Also, it's been a long time since I've seen them WC. Maybe someone can chime in on this being true or not.
I've had many wild caught T's over the years and never had a problem with mites or other infestations, not to say that it doesn't happen. New acq's should have a week or so to adjust to their cage before you feed them. Exception being if it's very thin and malnourished. Priority #1 is a clean water bowl and a natural, low-stress environment. Once they settle in and still don't feed, a molt is usually in the works.
