In brief: Doctor can evaluate
There are many causes of blood in the stool, ranging from benign to malignant (cancer).
Bloody stools can be caused by hemorrhoids, colitis, diverticulosis, colon cancer, and more. If a person has blood in his or her stool, it should be checked out by a doctor as soon as possible.

In brief: Anal fissure or more
Mucus discharge occurs in up to 50% of patients with irritable bowel syndrome, with or without pain.
Mucus may also be produced in response to partial obstruction, chronic constipation, rectal dysfunction, infection, & even from secretory villous tumors of the rectum. At the very least stool studies & probably a sigmoidoscopy should be considered, but a more extensive evaluation may be warranted.

In brief: Bloody stool mucus
The most common cause is hemorrhoids.
Other causes include inflammatory bowel syndrome, irritable bowel syndrome, colitis (often due to antibiotics), infectious diarrhea (like salmonella, shigella, yersinia, campylobacter, parasites, or viruses). Chemotherapy for cancer will also do it. This symptom can also be a presenting sign for either a polyp or colon cancer.
