Clear discharge from my penis tip. What can it be?

Customer Question

I am a 41 year old male. Married faithfully to my wife of 18 years. She is also faithful. There is no sexual encounters outside the marriage. So, lastnight, I had a bowel movement. As I was ending the bathroom visit and going to use toilet paper, I noticed a bit of clear discharge which was hanging from my penis tip. I removed it, inspected it and smelled it before flushing. I pulled any leftover secretions from the base up through the tip and got a little more. The smell was scentless, the texture was sticky, the transparency was clear.
This is an isolated incidence and I have not noticed prior to or after lastnight's one time. What could this be? I am not concerned as their is not any additional symptoms. Just wondering.
Can you advise what this is or is it normal?

This is prostatic secretion or thickened semen.
This does not seem to be an infection or STD.
In infection, it would be creamy, or yellow with smell.
There can be burning sensation.
It is not significant.
I hope this information helps.
