Migration does not stop please help

I am migrating my large but inefficient database cluster $120/month (it is costly because I only use about 10% of it) to smaller database cluster $60/month using migration built in digitalocean. It is working very well until it reached the end but it never ends from source it said :

Binlog Dump GTID: Source has sent all binlog to replica; waiting for more updates

And the migration destination said in its queries :

waiting for source to send event

And the migration has NEVER stopped until this questions posted

Is it safe to stopped it manually? Or it will run migration forever?
