Try righting on the image

Select Colors

Then select Threshold and see if you can adjust out the clutter.

Alternatively try Image->Colors->Curves and see if adjustment there
will clean it up for you

Lastly, try converting the image to indexed, Image->mode->Indexed and
set the number of colors to 2

You can keep your scanned image, once you clean it out, save it as an
xcf so you can do more work on it, then if you want a png or jpg, just
export it, File->Export to that format/file type
