In brief: Depends

I do not know what surgery you had, if it is an end or loop colostomy.
The residual rectum will occasionally have a thick mucous dischage that could look like bowel contents, and if you have a loop colostomy the rectal discharge could be more. May need to see a doctor for an examination.
