Sediment in radiator reservoir

I have a 2012 dcsd 4.0 and I have white sediment in my radiator reservoir.It sits at the bottom. I have no idea why it appeared. I only have 9,000 miles. Also, what is the normal range for the temperature gauge? Mine sits right in the middle after it warms up and hasn't climbed above that point. Just wondering if it is running hot.

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

Most likely, its just sand from casting the block. On new vehicles, residual sand from casting can accumulate in the coolant reservoir after a few thousand miles. You can take it to the dealer, and they will replace it, or you can try and remove it yourself. The odds of it going back into the system are very slim, so its not a big deal.
