Yes it probably is.: The paragard (copper-t) iud contains no hormones, so it generally does not have any significant effect on a woman's menstrual cycle, including ovulation. However, some women may note slightly heavier, longer or more painful periods with this device, due to it's position in the uterus. A gummy clear or brownish (dried blood) discharge is likely normal sign of second half of your menstrual cycle.
