Interesting...: You may be seeing mucous in the stool, which, if present, could be indicative of an inflammatory bowel disorder, such as ulcerative colitis or crohn's disease. But don't panic just yet. I suggest you see your doctor if this persists, especially if you see any blood mixed into the stool. Good luck.
