Ick can be white, brown, grey,sometimes a greenish.
If he really doesn't seem to have ick, then don't worry about it. I'm going on what you said about him itching a bit and muck being on his face.
but salt bathes are good for a a variety of reasons, they can help actually just "clean" your fish. for a just a cleaning though, just put him in the salt water for a minute or two.
