It's the vinegar "mother"--perfectly normal. It says that you have real cultured vinegar--you got your money's worth.
This is essentially a "SCOBY" (Symbiotic Culture of Bacteria and Yeast") just like is used to make Kombucha, but the vinegar "mother" is what makes the vinegar. You can even use this "mother" to make a new batch of vinegar by placing the mother in a clean jar with fruit juice or wine.
You can scoop or strain it out if you prefer. It always reminds me of an alien life-form, but I think it's pretty interesting, actually.
