in a 16 year old, what would be the most likely cause for a rare streak of bright red blood on stool with small peaces of redish-clear mucus?

See your doctor: This is a problem that requires a face-to-face meeting with your doctor. In that meeting, your doctor will listen to you, perform a throrough examination and possibly order labs or other tests. Based on this information, he/she will be able to tell you what's wrong and what to do about it.
