In brief: Mucus

It is common to have a sticky clear or white rectal discharge during bowel movements, especially when constipated.
If the discharge is bloody or you continue to have constipation, see your doctor.

In brief: Depends

This could be excees mucus from inflammation of the anal canal secondary to the constipation or it could represent an infection.
See a colorectal surgeon for a complete evaluation.
