In brief: See your doctor

Mucous coming out of the anus along with a bowel movement can be common in people with irritable bowel syndrome (a condition with bouts of constipation or diarrhea and cramps).
If there is pain or bleeding with having a bowel movement, and the discharge looks yellow or green, it could mean some inflammation, like colitis. If you have anal sex, there could be an infection. See your doctor!
