Plotting a variable against datetime

I am a beginner at learning R. I have a dataset for nuclear radiations leakage. Out of the many variables, 3 of them are: Loader ID, Captured.Time and Uploaded.Time. I have the below problem statement:

Plot or describe the distribution of the readings by "Loader ID". Each "Loader ID" provides a time series distribution.

Below are the sample values of captured time: 2/3/2020 5:00:00 PM 2/1/2020 3:00:00 AM

There are many values for the same date differing by just few minutes.

I tried to use ggplot but I am getting a very weird plot from which nothing can be interpreted.

I am not sure if my approach is right. Should I consider only the dates? If yes, how can I extract date from the datetime? (already tried as.date).

PFA the screenshot of the plot I am getting with ggplot. Your help is highly appreciated.
