Help. Mucus plug???

So for about 2 weeks now I have been having a yellow/clear snot like discharge. Well today it was a lot bigger and has some pinkish brown in it. Is this the full mucus plug? I'm 39 weeks. I never lost it with my first.

If I saw anything pinkish brown, I'd ask my doctor. Just call though, no need to go in unless the doctor thinks you need to.
Can't call her until monday, but I have an appointment with her that morning .
I'm not sure how many people have this, but with my insurance, I have a 24 hr nurse hotline so if I can't call my doctor, or my son's doctor, I can call them. Do you have anything like that?
I'm not sure, I have BCBS for insurance.

No reason to call your doctor or go in unless your water breaks or you start having consistent contractions.
That's what I was thinking. I heard it's normal for some brown or pink in it. Contractions have stated, but not staying constant yet.

I'm still having some come out, but it isn't tinged with any pink or brown just a light yellowish
