Anyone lost their mucus plug?

So I’m 37+6 today and I’m sure I lost some of my mucus plug last night. After I’d been to the toilet I looked at the toilet roll where I saw this string / gel like substance, around 1-2 inch long, clear/ off white in colour. Could this be my mucus plug or just discharge?
