Guppies shedding slime coat?

Hello! Today when I went to turn my guppies' tank light off at the end of the day, I noticed a weird white, whispy, vaguely fish-shaped clump floating at the top of the tank. I almost had a heart attack because I thought it was one of my babies, but when I removed the lid and scooped it out, it was just a big gob of slime or mucus. All 3 of my guppies appear normal, but it has been about 2 days since I was supposed to do a water change. Should I be worried? They're all different ages (2, 1.5, and 6 months) and I've been keeping guppies for about 2 years, never seen this before.
