You'll have to look at the plug all the way to the heating element. It's possible it's melted, also it might be that the iron has poor contact with the wires attaching to it. Does it have any temperature control? Any thing that is in between the wires from the plug to the iron of glue gun might be shot.

No need for concern. Just leave it there and then the next time you use it push a new one in as needed.
I haven't met a glue gun yet where you can take out the last remnants of glue stick.
If you prefer to remove it try this:
take a paper clip and straighten it (any thin,metal object will work) Heat the glue gun,unplug it,and then heat the end of the paper clip with a lighter/candle.
Insert it into the end that you load from,sticking it into the glue stick. Wait a short time and then pull the paper clip out. The glue stick should come out with it.
I find it easier to leave the glue stick in as I said,but it's your choice.

There is a glue build up inside. Most likely in the feeding mechanism, try to heat it up, the unplug, and use like a paper rolled up to try to remove some of the glue. :)
