Well, my mucus plugs are definitely slippery, stretchy/stringy, and mostly clear, usually streaked with blood.  When I would wipe it would just hang out of me and I'd actually have to grab it and pull it to clean myself off.  White and sticky doesn't sound the same to me, but perhaps it's just the beginning of something more.  When it starts to come out, you'll know!  And the appearance of streaks of blood is really the indicator that you're dilating.
