Plasma makes up 55% of the volume of the blood. Glucose content in blood cells is different (smaller) than the glucose content in plasma. So the average glucose content in the whole blood is different from both (lies in between).

To get an approximate plasma glucose value, multiply the whole blood value by 1.15. See

Is there any relation between the plasma in your blood and the state of matter known as plasma?

No. Plasma in blood is entirely different than the plasma state of matter. Blood plasma is a water based fluid. State of matter plasma is a highly energetic (i.e. very, very hot, even millions of degrees) mass of material where the electrons have, due to the high heat, been stripped off of the mass.
