It's just minerals. As you boil the water off the minerals get more concentrated until they can't stay in solution (plus the solubility of some minerals decreases as the temperatures go up) You can remove it with vinegar but unless it's really thick, I wouldn't worry about it.

It's just simple Calcium deposits, and with me I just leave them there. When they get thicker they flake off, and I have to watch out not to pour them into my tea. Otherwise, don't worry about them. I gently pour about 90% of the water out of the kettle, then i pour the last 10% of the water into the sink, with the flakes of calcium in that water. Sometimes I add a bit more water and swish it around to clean out the inside of loose calcium flakes, and then throw it out too. Yes, if you want you can try to remove the calcium, but why bother?
