How do you say "So, yeah" in German?

E.g.:

So, yeah I need to get going.

Here's my attempt:

Also, muss ich verlassen.

Do you mean this as a filler word to end a conversation and turn away?

I think this differs from speaker to speaker.

A young person could say:

Ok, ich muss dann mal los.

Other informal ways are:

Also dann, ich gehe dann mal.

Na gut, ich muss (los).

Starting with „Also, …“ is possible, but I would expect it to be stretched in this context and with a short break before going on with this set phrase (e.g. „Alsooo … ich mache mich dann mal los.“)

In a more formal context I could imagine

Gut, ich muss mich (dann) auf den Weg machen.

Please note that especially the informal examples could be considered as rude when using them to end a conversation. If unsure, explain briefly why you have to leave.
