Are these Mealybugs or powdery mildew?!

I just got my first plant, the Lemon Button Fern and I noticed that the fronds were turning brown and dry. I thought it was lack of humidity and water but as I was about to snip some fronds I noticed white tiny dots and some cotton like fibers on the plant. Is it Mealybugs or powdery mildew? If it is Mealybugs would you say its a mild or serious case. If more images are needed in better lighting I will take some! Thanks :)
