In brief: Could be, but...

There are a lot of mucous-producing cells in the colon and rectum, so some mucous can be normal at times.
But if the mucous is persistent or heavy, stools are loose, your infant seems uncomfortable, not gaining weight well, or any blood in the stools, it would warrant evaluation.
