When I brush my teeth I pull and spit out mucus from the back and mid of my throat and it seems where the back of the nose connect to the throat. Is this okay, safe or normal?

In brief: Anatomy

The oral cavity and the nasal cavity connect in the back of your throat.
That's why you can breath through your mouth or your nose. If you have a lot of mucus check with your primary care physician who may want you to see an ear/nose/throat specialist.
