I assume there is no mixture of your urine with bowel movements.I assume you have no symptoms of urinary burning,frequency,or urgency. Tiny amounts of mucus in urine is usually not significant but large amounts, especially with an odor, is different. A urinalysis with microscopic examination would give an idea of how much mucus is present&see if pus cells are present. ?Had culture ?Saw urologist.
