White vs clear: Typically the color of your urine tells us about your hydration status. I am assuming you mean clear in color when you say white - if it is white and cannot see through it well, please go see someone right away, but if you mean it looks more like 7UP or Sprite, that means you are typically well hydrated, the more dark yellow your urine looks, the more dehydrated you likely are.

Confusing: If male, may be prostatic secretions or infectious drainage. (if female, may be vaginal secretions exiting along with urine). Either way, should be checked to be sure no infection present.

Hard to say!: What does it look like? Mucus? A worm???? Are you having any other symptoms like burning when you urinate, peeing more than usual, back pain, vomiting, or abdominal pain? Please ask your question again and give a few more details. Also, list any meds you take or any chronic medical conditions you have in your online profile.
