Ceiling very crumbly and possible asbestos??

I just had an electrician out to install a new light. The ceiling seemed so thin and old ( built in the 50s). White powder came down from the ceiling and now I'm worried about asbestos. The entire house also has popcorn ceilings, but I cant tell if the ceiling is old drywall or plaster. I wouldn't mind putting up a new ceiling, but could the other be dangerous?
