Is this something I should be concerned about, thinking further down the line? I moved to fleece from shavings a week or so ago and this is the first time I've seen what I assume is calcium in dried-out wee. I know wee is often a creamy colour anyway and my piggies are behaving perfectly normally; I just want to make sure that if this is anything I should be worried about, then I'm catching it as early as possible. :)

It is only something to worry about if it happens on a daily or near daily basis; the occasional one-off is not a problem.
it is the natural way for the body to excrete calcium. ;)

As long as calcium pees are just a powdery/milky substance, you also do not need to worry about sludge and crystals in the bladder.
