Now they ve found a carotid bruit and also a murmur in my chest ... clots don t seem to fit my history, how likely is it to be a clot?

Welcome to HealthcareMagic forum.
Clots are unlikely in a normal pregnancy at your age. It might be possible that the carotid bruit was there earlier also but it got noticed by chance during the pregnancy only due to the investigations you underwent.
