Lost all radiator fluid on the highway then I find this... Whats going on.

2000 323i E46
Simply going down the highway and I get the low radiator fluid warning, then it goes off and the engine starts to overheat. It did not make it to the red zone before I cut the engine off and pulled over. This is what I found.. Its as though the guts of the plug came out.. Whats going on?? Can I order a new plug?

A plug inside a plug.. Didn't know they did this, thanks for the reply. I have a m/t so I guess I'll have to find a slightly different plug.
Thanks
