I am 38 weeks pregnant and I have had clear jelly like discharge twice today and more frequent bm's. Could I be going into labor?

In brief: Maybe

Though you will start having contractions to call it labor. At 38 weeks, you can go into natural labor at any time, so you should have your bag packed to go to the hospital at any time.
The discharge is probably a physiologic discharge.
