Sometimes "extras" get put in the egg while the hen is making it. There is nothing to worry about-she will be fine an the egg is fine to use. It is just a clitch in the process.

Sometimes it happens. It really isn't unusual. It won't hurt you. Fish it out and cook the eggs. You will see lots of strange things over the years raising chickens.
