Burning plastic smell

Hey all!
I have noticed the past few days that when I'm driving my car it starts to get like a burning plastic smell. Its definitely from the front of the car. It's not super strong but I have a 2016 Chevy crude limited. I haven't quite reached 2,000 miles. Did anyone or has anyone else had this issue? I've been reading and some people are saying it's the burning of the Merchandiser oil?
Thank you!

Did you by any chance run over a plastic bag?

I did once. It was just blowing in the road. But it stuck to my catalytic converter and smelled like burning plastic for over a year.
