Looks like some type of clear algae.
Is your tank newly set up?

I think I had some of this on a rock in my tank, but its now gone on its own.

Ok. I also had this stuff when I had a new tank for a few weeks. Its now gone on its own, and after water changes.
Hopefully the same will happen to u.
Could be part of some new tank cycling...

It's mold. It's very common and perfectly harmless, it'll go away on its own soon.

Did you treat the driftwood before you pit it in your tank?

I did mine in a water bath canner. It was the only thing big enough to fit it in! It big enough that it fits over 2 burners.
