Default Spark Plug Replacement!?

so i replaced my spark plugs and wires on November 2010. I checked my plugs today because I was cleaning the throttle body and iac and took some pictures of one of the plugs. By the way I have driven exactly 5000km since I changed the plugs and wires. So is this the way a plug should look like?

ok cool thanks I was just making sure because I have a little bit of a rough idle. I'm thinking it is the maf or the egr valve.

thanks

Clean your MAF, throttle body and IAC.

ya I cleaned my IAC and throttle body today. Surprisingly the throttle body really wasn't that bad..... The IAC also wasn't that dirty either however I did clean them and reinstalled them. I'll clean the MAF and see what happens after that.
