In brief: Mildly

Ecotrin is Aspirin with an enteric (stomach) coating.
Aspirin inhibits platelets which are necessary to initiate clotting. People on Aspirin take longer to form a blood clot than people who don't take aspirin.

Aspirin is a platelet inhibitor. The enteric coating is to protect the stomach from irritation by the aspirin.
