Is it normal to have a mucus like substance come out when I have bowel movements? I am a very constipated person.

In brief: It's normal
Many people pass mucus during bowel movements and it's nothing to worry about.
As far as the constipation is concerned, stool softeners, fiber-rich foods and increased fluid intake can help the problem. If you notice blood in your stool, weight loss, abdominal pain or continued constipation, you should see your doctor.
