I have a few floaters myself

It's from a change in density in the vitreous humor--the jelly in the eyeball

But if one suddenly pops up combined with flashes of light that needs to get checked out since you might have a vitreous detachment which is a pull on the retina and might lead to a retinal detachment

So you need to see your eye doctor as soon as possible

Please let me know if you need any more information
