is it possible that i can get the position of my tcp from a plane.

    Yes, it is possible. 

    You need to get the current TCP position with the Universal-Robot command: get_actual_tcp_pose()
    You then need to make a formula to calculate the distance from the defined plane to the coordinate retrieved. 
    -As we do not know how you define the plane, we cannot go deeper in the suggestions. 

    Enjoy math, UR and Robotiq product use.
